My friend Birdie, birder extraordinaire, went kayaking on the Silver River with me today. She gave me birding tutorials and trivia along the way, and no additional charge for bird call IDs.
The white ibises were plentiful, and dazzling when they flew overhead with their black tipped wings on a backdrop of blue sky.
Just monkeying around...
I know, it's a phoebe!
We're all smiling.
Birdie liked the limpkin best.
The sun feels good.
We're all enjoying the warm day.
I see you!
Do you think she'll like this wet stick he found?
Birdie made it to the head spring!
It's all downstream from here...
Drifting down the river...
Great Blue Heron shows off his plumage.
