By the time you read this blog post I will hopefully have checked my first lifer of the day off and be on to my second. Forgive the brevity of this post but, like with the last one, I really have neither the time nor the energy to do more at the moment. Space Coast has worn me out and left me with bleary eyes, a confused mind, and a nagging need for sweet, sweet sleep.
Anyway, I hope that my birding martyrdom is worth it. Take a look at these picture and let me know what you think!
10,000 Birds is a Scrub Jay-level sponsor of the 15th Annual Space Coast Birding and Wildlife Festival.
Very nice. I’d never noticed how green a cormorant’s eyes could be!
Okay, not entirely lousy pics in a lousy post. 🙂
I’ll get you, just you wait. I may only be at 74 for the year now, but my days will come.
Talk about up close and personal! Check out that jade green eye on the cormorant!
I have really enjoyed your protraits. Thanks for sharing them. I am glad you found the time to get to the festival.

What I think? I think you are marvelous! Glad to see you got a Scrub Jay while you were there to honor your level of sponsorship.
I had an out of town guest last week who was reading your blog, and wants to be included if possible. His address is FritzKlepm@yahoo.com. He loved your writing and wanted to know if you were going to collate any of this into a book? And, BTW, he used to teach photography at Case Western University, and has published a book of his photography and writing, so I consider him an expert on quality photography, Jeanne Weaver firstname.lastname@example.org
Love all the shots, especially the Tricolored Heron. How many other birds (actually, how many other creatures, period) can do that kind of contortionist trick with their necks? Great capture!
What gorgeous closeups, the feathers and eyes! I adore scrub jays from living most of my life in Northern California. They have more personality than most cats and dogs.
