Current mood: mournful 🚩 Red tide continues to ravage the Gulf of Mexico, with a state of emergency issued in 7 counties including mine. In Sarasota, 66 tons of dead fish were removed from beaches in just 10 days. Wildlife rescue facilities are filled with sickened birds. ⚠️ Wearing a mask is advised if near the coast, because aerosolized toxins affect respiration, sometimes intensely. At home (1.5 miles inland!), going outside brings on coughing, a runny nose, and tearing eyes. 💔 Some experts say this might last through 2019; one stated only a hurricane could dissipate it. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Mourning Dove in my backyard.

Cattle Egret (Bubulcus ibis) fledglings face off as a prelude to a minor spat. These siblings do not have much to do while they wait to be fed by one of their parents except walk or briefly fly among the limbs of the small tree in which their nest is located. That activity, surely a thrill initially, becomes boring pretty quickly. Nature abhors a vacuum, so they sometimes bicker over trivial matters such as who occupies the higher perch. Most people who have grown up with a brother or sister or have parented two or more pre-teens can understand this. ... Boynton Beach, Florida, USA. ... Nikon D850, 1/2000 sec, f/6.3, ISO 140.

....we have a couple of Black-necked Stilt's at the refuge. This one didn't want to cooperate with me as it kept meandering in and out of the marsh grasses. *All prints available for purchase at: www.randytraynorphotography.com #blackneckedstilt #yearofthebird #live_love_wildlife #birds_perfection #birdsofinstagram #feather_perfection #naturesbestphotomagazine #audubonsociety #eye_spy_birds #nuts_about_birds #planetbirds #your_best_birds #best_birds_of_ig #bestbirdshots #wildplanetphotomag #floridawild #keepflwild #wildlifephotography #wildplanet #iganimalkingdom #birdinginflorida #lenscoat #visittally #ihearttally
Turkey Vulture in Florida, September 2017. My camera isn't really good enough for flight shots but this vulture went gliding over at an altitude of ten feet really slowly. #birds #birding #birdphotography #nature #naturephotography #wildlife #wildlifephotography #ebird #birdinginflorida #audubon #audubonsociety #bestbirdshots #birdsofinstagram #bird_brilliance #birdsinflight

Profile of a Tricolored Heron, photographed in Merritt Island, Florida. Its U.S. range is limited to Florida and the southern most parts of a few other states. The white belly distinguishes them from Little Blue Herons and Reddish Egrets, other wading birds found in the same area. . . #tricoloredheron #heron #wadingbirds #waterbirds #merrittisland #floridabirds #birdinginflorida #floridaphotography
Ibis flyby

Dreaming of the one that got away... (scroll —> )
The lesson was clear: Fly! Two parent Green Heron took flight from the brush calling loudly to their chick. Back and forth, they flew. Alert, chick sees. I watch and wonder, ‘This is it! Off little one will go.’ And then, hello distraction. (Swipe) Chick notices a Great White Egret ('Who are you?') I wonder, could anything interrupt chick's caught-upness in seeing Egret? Ah yes! (Swipe) The dare-devil criss-cross demo—the parents' enlightened ability recaptures chick’s attention. And off and up it (eventually) flew-hopped. . . “We can always begin again.” - Jack Kornfield . . . Green Heron chick, August 2018.

Man it's so hard to distinguish the mallard, mottled and black duck lol. But I think this is an American Black Duck. #americanblackduck #duck #waterfowl #birdworld
Mottled Duck
Black-bellied Whistling Duck.
Green Heron
This is a common loon I took back in January 2017...the only time I've ever seen one. We were taking an eco-tour on the Indian river out of Port Canaveral. #birding #portcanaveral #commonloon #birdinginflorida #florida #loon

Green Heron and Wood Duck - just hanging out.
That bill has some stories to tell. Roseate Spoonbill from last winter.
Yeah, yeah...I know Nanday Parakeets are #nonnative , #wild #exotics in Florida, but it’s still a stunning bird!
Crested Caracara just south of Labelle, Florida, April 2015. I saw a handful on my 2015 trip but failed to see any in 2017 when I returned. #birds #birding #birdphotography #nature #naturephotography #wildlife #wildlifephotography #ebird #birdinginflorida #audubon #audubonsociety #bestbirdshots #birdsofinstagram #audubonsociety #birds_of_instagram #falcon

I had not seen the baby ducks for about two weeks and was worried they had been nabbed by the neighborhood hawks. On the way home from running an errand this afternoon, they appeared again. All 13 of them running around mama duck. They've grown up in a few weeks. I now know where they hide. Nikon D7000 and Nikkor 70-200 f/4.0 lens.
