I took a walk at one of my local parks after work this week to enjoy my last day of freedom before heading into self quarantine. I also wanted to play with my new lens that I got the day previously.

I am pretty sure they are Mottled ducks, unfortunately I couldn't get a good look at the blue wing patch.

R5) Anhinga - Anhinga

Chain of Lakes

3-18-20

 

This Anhinga had a mouth full of fish, and I was entertained by the fact the fish was almost as large as the bird's body.

Some lovely birds in your sightings, from what I'm told the wildlife in Florida isn't what it was just a few years ago but there are obviously some good birds about still.

@Dave Williams I don't know about before, but it seems the song birds are much shier here in Florida than what I remember about Arizona. I'm hoping to set up a bird feeder or two to help so I can get my local birds.

 

@michael-ibk Thank you! I wondered a few times if he would end up having to give up the meal with all the trouble he was having.

Now, I know we are all in our quarantined homes and are being encouraged to stay home as long as possible, but on Thursday I finished and submitted my midterm that was due for my college humanities course. So to celebrate the end of that stress I wanted to reward myself with a hike. It was shorter than I wanted it to be, but I'm excited to go back to Fox Lake Park as it was a really beautiful piece of land to explore.

 

44) Turkey Vulture - Cathartes aura

Fox Lake Park

Turkey vultures are the largest of the vultures that we get in North America. They are surprisingly efficient at their jobs, and do bully the smaller black vultures. I will also try to get a better photo than this at some point.

45) Northern Cardinal (Male) - Cardinalis cardinalis

Fox Lake Park

Cardinals are probably the first birds most learn to identify. They are the state bird for many different states as well as team mascots for both American Football and Baseball. Cardinals are one of my favorite birds as well. I wish he was in better light as the red of his plumage is striking. /
