Florida Birds in Winter – #Sunday Stills

Please find my contribution for this weeks #SundayStills photography challenge, ‘For the Birds‘ hosted by Terri Webster Schrandt.

As an avid birder, I could have gone on for days and flooded this blog with bird photos. I decided I had other things needing my attention today. I did include photos that were taken in January or February of their perspective years. The Brown Thrasher is usually a spring/summer bird, but we had one in our backyard last week.

These woodpecker photos were taken in my yard.

  1. Awesome, beautiful series of birds. Love the Downy Woodpecker shot and framing and a great shot of the Black-crowned Night Heron close-up! How special to see your Brown Thrasher off-season too! 🙂

  2. Lovely photos! I have crossed Payne’s Prairie many times on the way to Tarpon Springs. I read that it was once a lake and that steam boats navigated it. 😎

  4. Lovely! I saw the MOST PERFECT bluebird yesterday. Of course I didn’t have my phone out and he’d flown away before I even really registered that he was there.

  5. I think I’ve told you about Birdsong nature preserve just north of Tallahassee. If you’re ever in my area I’d love to meet you there. They’ve got this gorgeous viewing area and this time of year there are so many migratory birds visiting. It’s a delightful place.
