Yellow Billed Cuckoo in the Heat

I had to work this morning, so I didn’t get to the Nature Center until noon, and it was disappointing. Temps were close to 90 with high humidity and a slight breeze. I can usually count on seeing many birds, but they were all holed up in the shade, and I got only a few shots.
Note to self:No birding at noon on hot days.


I’ve always seen large flocks of Starlings at Greenbury Point, and now I know where they hang out: in the support beams of the large radio towers.

Great Crested Flycatcher

This Great Crested Flycatcher was one of the few birds out in the heat.

Yellow Billed Cuckoo

I noticed a newly created path at the Nature Center last week, but hadn’t taken the time to investigate it until today. I had pretty much given up on the day, so this Yellow Billed Cuckoo was a very nice surprise.
