I Am Ignoring You

Just a little hint of how the birds down here ignore you or pretend you are not there.


Above this heron sits on our canoe after we pulled it up onto the floating dock and headed inside after a long, rather cool and windy day in Florida cruising the islands behind Key Largo. He managed to leave a calling card on the boat, of course.



Above this heron, same species as the one above, is tucked into the mangrove leaves as we cruised in back to our space in the back of the condo. Magnificent, isn't he?

You certainly meet some species that we don't have further north. Nice one.

Great bird pics-
When I was there my car didn't frighten Turkey vultures or Golden Eagles. At least the white Egrets kept a distance.

Lunch in Key Largo again sounds great right now- Our snow is huge!

I don't think we have that particular heron down here. They must be very used to people.

What a great looking bird. Yellow crowned night heron??

We had a lot of herons that would stop at our pond in Kansas but I rarely see a heron here. They are a bit gawky but beautiful too.
