  3. Sanderling and Sandpiper

    Sanderling and Sandpiper

    The left hand bird is a semipalmated sandpiper. And of course, the Sanderling is also a sandpiper.
  4. Osprey


    We do need images from the rear for id purposes. That is my story of why I am uploading this, and I am sticking to it ...
  5. Pale head Gator

    Pale head Gator

    This American Alligator had been lying still for so long that the parts above water were dried out to a pale grey color, while the rest still was dark. I have an image of the full animal too if you are interested.

  9. Green Anole

    Green Anole

    The same individual as uploaded yesterday. In this image, it had started changing the upperside color to match the brownish branch it was now sitting on. A second later, it had spread to a lot more of the back.
  10. Green Anole

    Green Anole

    This animal was very green but not many seconds later, its upperside was brownish ("ochre"). The color change was likely a result of moving to a location with a different background color. Fun fact: the anole in Barbados (currently considered a separate species) is one of the most green anoles...
  11. Swallowtail


    This butterfly: I am not sure which species this is. It seems quite pale in the yellow colors.
  12. Great Crested Flycatcher

    Great Crested Flycatcher

    Looking around for the next morsel.
  13. Tricolored Heron

  14. Anhinga


    Male. I found the green color of the bare skin around the eye surprising, did not realize they had that.
  15. Chipping Sparrow

    Chipping Sparrow

    This bird was a good distance away from me ...
  16. Red-cockaded Woodpecker

    Red-cockaded Woodpecker

    Several of these around but none of them close to me.
  17. American Alligator

    American Alligator

    It was doing its usual gator thing of only having the snout and eyes over the water.
  18. Roseate Spoonbill

    Roseate Spoonbill

    A part of a group of birds resting in the mid day heat.
  19. Gull-billed Tern

    Gull-billed Tern

    Same location, different day, so I cannot know if it is same individual as last time I uploaded a photo of a Gull billed tern.
  20. Whimbrel


  21. Yellow-crowned Night Heron P1250319.jpg

    Yellow-crowned Night Heron P1250319.jpg

    The chisel shaped bill is important in identifying this bird. Unfortunately, there is something pale in front of the bill, but with the bird hiding inside the vegetation, that is difficult to avoid.
  22. Semipalmated Sandpiper

    Semipalmated Sandpiper

    Standing still for your photo? No way, I am busy getting food (notice its foot).
  23. Semipalmated Plover

    Semipalmated Plover

    One of a larger number of birds running the wave zone of the beach.
  24. Spotted Sandpiper

    Spotted Sandpiper

  25. Caspian Tern

    Caspian Tern

    Several of these birds flying along. The other bird I have photos of shows the more frequent darker tip of the bill.
