January 4, 2012 Everglades Pond   Leave a comment

After our very long lunch we decided to head out of the park for Eden Rock Hotel on Miami Beach, the NSPE winter meeting location.  We noticed several cars pulled over to the side of the road, Bill pulled over so we could see what everyone was looking at.  OH MY!  It was feeding time at the clearing/pond.  I didn’t think to count, I just started taking pictures…

I will try my best to identify the many birds I captured:

Roseate Spoonbill, Adult White Ibis, Muscovy Duck, Great Blue Heron

Foreground: Anhinga, Background: Blue Heron

Green-winged Teals (Common Moorhen in background)

Bottoms Up (Green-winged Teals pokes its head in the water to sift food from the muddy bottom)

 

Splish Splash – Female Blue-winged Teals or Female Green-winged Teals

Blue or Green-winged Teals

Clockwise from back to front: Female Blue or Green-winged Teals, American Coot, Common Moorhen, Male Green-winged Teal

Mirror, Mirror On The Pond (Common Moorhen) 

I’m So Pretty – American Coot
