SQUARES – Bright Eyed and Bushy Tailed

This squirrel was not shy and got right up near where we were birding at Lettuce Lake Park in Tampa, Florida.

Water Water Everywhere #71 – MANATEES

Manatees have ventured into the springs to keep warm at Blue Spring State Park in Orange City, Florida. The large dark lumps in the water are manatees, aka Sea Cows.

SQUARES – Super Fast

This is a Western Chipmunk found in the western part of North America. They eat vegetation, fungi, insects, arthropods, small frogs, worms and bird eggs. Occasionally, they will eat newly hatched birds.

SQUARES – My Pup, Heaven

I know Heaven’s time is getting shorter too. She was wrapped up in her blanket waiting for me to get comfy so she could cuddle at my feet. She is a spoiled little girl and I’m okay with that!

SQUARES – Keep Your Chin Up

Mr. Turtle is stretching hard here to promote some positivity as he is leading by example with his “chin up”.

SQUARES – Up to no Good

This Mamma and Baby Orangutan were cozied up at the Lowry Park Zoo in Tampa. This was taken 14 years ago.

Sunday Stills – Year in REview – 2020

What a challenging year 2020 was in many respects. I began my year with a birding blog on January 5, 2020 called “Today is for the Birds” with great excitement because I had just written my first guest blog with Jacksonville Business Connections through my job titled “Unlock the Bird Lover in You for 2020”. Little did I know that it wouldn’t last.

Water Water Everywhere #56 – heron vs. gator

Tricolored Heron getting a little close to a large gator.

Tricolored Heron pushing his luck with the big ole’ gator. In Florida, where there’s water, there is always a chance an alligator is somewhere to be found.

Song Lyric Sunday – “The Snake Song” Billy Gilman

This week I chose “The Snake Song” by Billy Gilman. The lyrics are quite quirky!

Song Lyric Sunday – “I Like Birds” by Eels

This week I chose 2 songs. The first one is by Eels called “I Like Birds”. The second one is “Bird Dog” by The Everly Brothers. Two very different songs but I couldn’t make up my mind.
