I’ve got more Turkey images this year than all previous years combined. I spoke to the CBEC Admin today, and she says there’s another flock, with smaller chicks that I haven’t seen yet. Entertaining birds.
The Osprey chicks are fledging, and I may have seen a first flight yesterday. I’ll check tomorrow to see if they’re both flying. Brown Thrashers and Great Crested Flycatchers were also very active today. The Red Headed Woodpeckers were having an aerial in the pines, which was fun to watch.
I’ve gotten three cool birds there in the last week, so maybe my luck will continue.
Dawn, looking across the lake.
This Osprey flew just about the right path to get a shot.
I encountered this flock of Wild Turkeys twice as I circled the lake.
This Mockingbird has found a good breakfast.
I’ve never encountered this many Brown Thrashers (About 6-8) in close proximity before.
This Great Crested Flycatchers popped up a couple of times.
It appeared to me that the bird on the left had his first flight today.
Several Forster’s Terns were feeding in the lake. It’s a spectacular sight if you get the right vantage point.
I encountered this young buck at close range.He had his back to me, but took off like a rocket when he saw me.
