“Can’t talk now. We’re in the middle of a preening session.”

“I’ve got my beady eye on you all. It would be such a shame if you fell out of that tree.”

Happy Wednesday to you all. Stay safe.

 

Silent Sunday: The Vigil

A Great Blue Heron standing guard over the remains of another one who had evidently met an untimely death. There were dozens of people on the boardwalk taking photos, but he seemed oblivious as he stood there absolutely motionless. I felt so sad for him, as he was obviously grieving and didn’t want to leave his mate. I wonder how long his vigil lasted.

Wishing you all a peaceful Sunday.

What’s The Well-dressed Anhinga Wearing This Season?

Here we have Ms Annie anhinga modelling her stunning winter outfit. It presents an elegant and smooth profile with the cape completely closed.

For a more dramatic effect, the cape can be opened right up to show the magnificent placing of the feathers. This outfit can not only be worn in Florida’s sunny weather, but also if there’s a sudden downpour it’s totally water-resistant. In fact it’s so versatile that one can even swim in it.

Wishing you all a very pleasant Tuesday.

Feathers On Friday: Mr. Peli Just Flew In

Mr Peli has just arrived to check out the lodging conditions for the winter season and I’m sure his friends aren’t far behind.

Looks like Grandpa Igasho will have to share his tree for a while. I hope they get along together.

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend.

One Liner Wednesday: I will survive.

I’m happy to report that Grandpa Igasho is still alive and well…… and would you just look at the length of that tail!

He’s found his safe place where no Iguana Control person can reach him. Look to the right of the arrow. One would have to not only brave our resident alligator, but also be an agile tree climber to get to him.

Hope your week is going as well as Igasho’s is.
