Gatorland Again – February 2021

Today was a beautiful day for another trip over to Gatorland in Orlando, Florida. [About a 50 mile ride] It is still a bit early for the chicks to arrive, but some Great Egrets were nesting. It was a cloudless day, and from the next photo, you can see that there are plenty of birds … Continue reading

Whistling Duck Visitors

Whistling Duck Visitors

I glanced out our back door and saw two Black-Bellied Whistling Ducks just a few feet from the patio. I was so busy enjoying watching them, that I forgot to pick up my camera, which was right near me. By the time my brain kicked in and I got the lens cap off, they were … Continue reading

What Alarms Are You Sounding?

What Alarms Are You Sounding?

“Birds’ lives are so filled with danger that they’re on alert at all times, just to stay alive. Luckily, they have several tactics to avoid becoming the next meal for a cat or hawk. One, of course, is to fly away, a good choice, but not always possible. Another is to call in a troop … Continue reading

Ten Beautiful Hummingbirds

Ten Beautiful Hummingbirds

An interesting video with ten of the most beautiful Hummingbirds in the world. What a Creator! Such variety and colors. I love the way the sun reflects on them and its affect on them. How well are we reflecting? “The LORD make His face shine upon you, And be gracious to you;” (Numbers 6:25 NKJV) … Continue reading

Great Egret by Dan

Silver, Gold, and Hearts

Silver, Gold, and Hearts

While reading today, this verse caught my attention. There has to be birds with each of these in their names: “The refining pot is for silver and the furnace for gold, But the LORD tests the hearts. (Proverbs 17:3 NKJV) A simple blog with a great message. “The refining pot is for silver and the … Continue reading

Birdwatching and More Photos By Dan at Gatorland

Birdwatching and More Photos By Dan at Gatorland

My last post showed some of Dan’s photos he had taken, that were related to my previous post about Gatorland. I kid often about not knowing the difference from an “F-stop” or a “Stop Sign.” And it is true. I am not a photographer, just a Birdwatcher who takes photos of birds. That is what … Continue reading

Dan’s Photos – Wishful Thinking, Flamingo, and Vulture

Finally, I was able to encourage Dan to share some of his great photos from our latest Gatorland visit. He is a much more busier than me, and processing photos taken in “raw format” take more time. My “JPEG” are a snap to get ready. That said, here are the first few that go along … Continue reading
