Lots More Birding

Today Skip and I went out to the Birding Center and Convention Center today. We saw lots of stuff.

We spent 15 minutes watching this great blue heron devour a rather large fish

Green Heron in its usual spot - at a drain
Female (on left with brown back) and male Black-Necked Stilt
Second gator sighting

Third gator sighting at the bird blind with Great-tailed Grackle in the foreground
This cat was prowling around the plant centre beside the Birding Center.
This small (and probably harmless) snake was in the butterfly garden
Cactus beginning to bloom with lots of other buds
Phaon Crescent (I love the striped antennae)
Green Heron in pond in the middle of the Birding Center parking circle

Over at the Convention Center we went right over to the water feature, which was running.
