A New Week.

Started off with a couple of Golden Hour shots this morning, the river and boat landing lagoon at Magnolia were like glass.

The usual crowd…

The Man, the Myth, the Legend.

Some new visitors too.

Hooded Mergansers

I saw an eagle flying away when I approached the lagoon, but haven’t seen one since. So, on to the tower.

Obligatory Cool Bridge Shot

The Tower: I calculated it is about 43 feet tall. 3 stories, yes, but 17 steps per story instead of the standard 13. So, 51 ten inch risers, plus a 12 inch riser at the bottom and top makes it 42.5 feet. Beautiful from up there this morning, and plenty to see. Lots of white birds and a few other favorites.

Warm up shot
Blue Wing Teal and Gallinules

Did you know spell check wants to give you “ungainliness” instead of Gallinules? lol Maybe not so far off.

The best shots I have to date of the Harrier. Not great, not even really good, but proof one exists out there.

And then, coming from my left, bursting out from behind the trees, a juvenile Bald Eagle. I was fiddling with my camera, and almost missed it.

Time for a walk down to Perry’s Field.

Ibis
Gallinule

Preening, and looking beautiful as always, Little Blue Heron.

A long walk back to the truck, and on the way out…Red Shouldered Hawk, juvenile. Guenter and I stalked the same bird, from opposite directions. lol

Junior could maybe find a bigger branch on which to perch.

That’s a good day! And it’s not over yet.
