Variety of Florida Birds In Single Scenes

.

Here’s more of the big scenes during my recent morning visit to the Marsh Trail at 10,000 Islands NWR.  I had returned after the previous morning’s spectacular find with hundreds of birds at the start of a foggy morning (that post here).

On this second morning, what fog there had already lifted high into the sky.  The sun was burning it off, getting some light onto the scene here and there.  The sight was amazing, there were even more birds!

At least 12 bird species in the above photos:  American White Pelican, Brown Pelican, Great Egret, Snowy Egret, Reddish Egret, Great Blue Heron, Little Blue Heron, Tricolored Heron, Wood Stork, White Ibis, Roseate Spoonbill, and Double-crested Cormorant.

Three mornings and one evening in a row of lots of birds at this location.  Having not seen a scene like this before, I was indeed on Cloud 9.  I took a total of just under 2,000 photos.  I’m weeding through them to rid as many as I can and also find the very best of my close-ups to share with you.  🙂
