Event Update

If didn't choose to GOYB,  you missed an amazing walk out at the Vero Wastewater Treatment Wetlands. Lots of birds in breeding plumage. Heather, Ibrahim and I had a great 2 mile walk out there. Here's what you missed (click to enlarge):

 Lots of birds in the "mood" today. Here is a little blue heron with thoughts of loving on his mind (you can tell by the much brighter color on his bill.)
 This was an interesting scene - great egrets, an immature night heron, and a grackle. We went back and forth on the night heron, but David confirmed it.
A white ibis, also totally in the mood for loving. I am quite glad I don't turn colors every time that I'm in the mood.
 The same white ibis flying off.
 A momma, daddy and wittle bitty baby sandhill crane.
 I called this as a sora when I first saw it, then second guessed myself out of it. Then David confirmed that yes, it really was a sora. A cool bird, this picture doesn't do it justice.
We saw lots and lots and lots of marsh bunnies. This one was a poser.
A cattle egret. This is a simple little bird, but I just think they are too adorable. 

Now tell me, did you see ANYTHING like this while sitting on your couch today? I seriously doubt you did. Join us on our next outing and see more spectacular stuff!
