Feathers On Friday: A Snappy Dresser

I was delighted to get my first sighting of a Green Heron whilst out at the Nature reserve last Sunday, What a ‘Fashionista’ is this striking bird, balancing on slender yellow legs, with his velvet-green back, rich chestnut body, fancy waistcoat and chic dark chapeau. Although he’s quite a small heron, that dagger-like bill looks absolutely lethal. Any unfortunate victim on the receiving end certainly doesn’t stand a chance.

I hope this has been a good week for you all and that the weekend will be most enjoyable. This is my last weekend here in Florida before we leave for England next Saturday.

Mundane Monday: Just A Pigeon

“No, I’m not JUST a pigeon! My fancy name is Indomalaya Dove and by the way, don’t you just adore my new red footwear?”

Sometimes we forget just how extraordinary the more common varieties of birds are. Everything in nature is beautiful in its own way.

Wishing you all a happy week ahead.

Feathers On Friday: Mr GBH Does A Photobomb

So, the wood stork community and a few of their Anhinga friends were just hanging out together having a casual get together and just as I’d got them nicely posed for their photo shoot………

…. all of a sudden, a very streamlined Mr GBH decided to flash past like a streak of lightning. What a showoff!

Happy Friday and a pleasant weekend to you all.

Friday Feathers: Mr GBH Has The Sulks

Mr. GBH usually looks super dapper and very alert, but I’m sure like all of us, he does has his off days.  I usually call them, ‘Dumpy Down Days’. Do you think he was sulking or just having a ‘Bad Feather Day’?

“No, I’m not sulking………….Well maybe just a tiny bit.”

Happy Friday everyone and have a great weekend too.

Perry The Peli Practicing for Valentine’s.

Perry the Pelican was floating on the lake this morning and seemed to be practicing his heart shapes for Valentine Day.

No this isn’t quite right.

“That’s better, but I think I need to pull my neck back just a little bit further.

If only I could just stand on my head, it would look even better.

Wow that looks so cool. Must be trick photography, but I’ll take it.

Wishing you all a very happy week.
