Circle B Bar Reserve

I recently visited Circle B Reserve.  Activity is beginning to pick up but we still are not seeing the numbers of pelicans, storks and ducks that will likely arrive in December.  We did spot this pair of Red-Headed Ducks along Wading Bird Way.  I understand they have been around for two weeks. (remember to click on the image for a larger view)

There are quite a few Blue-Winged Teal Ducks hanging out at Wading Bird Way.

And last a Glossy Ibis.

Thanks for looking.  As activity picks up I will be posting more often.  For you Yellowstone fans I have submitted my application to work the summer season of 2012.

Circle Bar B Reserve

I visited Circle B again today but again found very little activity.  I still enjoyed the early morning walk.  I spoke with several people who thought it will be another month before we see the white pelicans and wood storks return in any large numbers.  I did enjoy watching a pair of bald eagles fly back and forth across the marsh, too far for photos.  I did manage to get a few photos as seen below.

This blue heron was perched high in a cypress tree looking out over Lake Hancock, maybe looking for a next meal.  (remember to "click" on the image to enlarge)

Nothing special about this limpkin, I just think they are neat birds.

I liked the reflection of this tri-colored heron.

Thanks, David
