A couple of weeks ago, Frank & I travelled to the St. Marks Wildlife Refuge near Tallahassee, Florida where we spent 9 hours birding.
Yesterday, December 27, 2020, Frank and I went out birding for the Christmas Bird Count (CBC) for the Audubon Society. Our birds were logged onto Ebird.org per the usual. The Canada Goose has become a permanent resident in Florida.
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.
Walking along the beach at Fort Clinch State Park In Fernandina, Florida at sunset. A shrimp boat was coming in or maybe going out on a night run. Birds were all over the boat while Pelicans sat and observed from the rock jetty.
The lumps in the water are the Manatees coming up for air which they do every 20 minutes or less. They are large marine mammals known as sea cows.

By the time we had spent over an hour at the tower watching for birds and just enjoying the peace, they had opened up for a great photo op on the way back towards the parking area. This was spring in full bloom in April of this year.
Week #18 challenge is Birds starting with the letter “A”. The letter “A” needs to be at the beginning of one or more of the name. For example, Some of my favorite shots are going to be shared in this post. A few have made appearances before and some are new to my blog world. Anna’s Hummingbird, Smooth-billed Ani or American Goldfinch.
Macro photography is close-up photography of small subjects. Mostly bugs and flowers get the spotlight, but today we are doing it on Bird Weekly. Macro is an extreme close-up, but for this post, any close-up will do. I know many of you don’t have a macro lens and that is okay.
This is the Atlantic Ocean at Little Talbot Island State Park off of A1A between Jacksonville & Amelia Island, Florida. You can see it was REAL crowded. LOL!
