Back south on Wednesday morning, up and gone around
2:30 am! Hope I get a couple hours sleep!
Here is a shot from our last tour to FLA, a Red-bellied woodpecker taken near Orlando. This bird was preparing its nest right beside a dock used for fishing boats. About 12 feet from the dock!
Standing as still as possible, the woodpecker carried on with its business, virtually ignoring us, and doing quite a nice job cleaning out the bottom of the nest hole.
Hoping the Purple gallinules are busy in nesting, and maybe some spoonies nesting to at the alligator farm at St. Augustine - just north of our hotel a few hours drive! We should see some wonderful coloured plumage, and so many birds!
Should be fun with the D850 this time, a great birding test for the camera. - real nature in superb Florida!
Looking forward to all the tolls too! (ouch!) .
