Paynes Prairie boardwalk.....

the prairie has been very dry...
 so I haven't been going there 
 as much this year....

back in April I stopped to get  
 a few shots of the repairs to the 
the marsh below is completely dry..
 no sight of the gators that use to  
 swim near the railings...

fast forward to late June ..
and the construction is  
 only partially complete ..
I have yet to see anyone working there. 
at this rate it might be 
 December before the
 work is complete...

 maybe the rain will 
bring back the gators  
 and migrating birds..

Monday blue .... bird

a great weekend for watching
the birds at the feeders 

 wondering if the female Eastern Bluebird  
is staying in a nearby nest .. 
 the male was constantly checking for 
 dinner  ( bugs )  

 he seems to prefer perching 
 on the feeder pole instead 
of sitting on the wooden feeder 

 he had a bath during the rain 
and  it took a long time for him 
to clean all those feathers..

new feeder ....

Bob bought ( another ) feeder...
 think he has really gotten into this  
  ...  not so much bird watching
just feeding them... and setting up 
 photo ops for me....

the male cardinal was a touch wary at first...
 he perched on the squirrel proof feeder
 and observed for a while ..

 but when a little chickadee arrived....
 he was suddenly territorial and chased
 the chickadee away from his stockpile..
