Waiting Patiently For Tomorrow

Tomorrow is going to be a big day.

We’re taking a short trip down to Glennville, Georgia to observe a flock of Swallow-Tailed Kites that will be foraging on June bugs. Each year the Swallow-Tailed Kites forage as a flock as they fatten up before their migration to South America.

We’ll be driving several hours (each way) to see this rare occurrence, and we’re all so excited we can hardly stand it.

Great Egret

 

Of course, this one of my latest photos of a Great Egret, not a Swallow-Tailed Kite, but I should have some decent photos of the Kites to post by Monday.

One Night Off. Rinse. Repeat.

I am taking one more night to relax before I get back into the swing of things. Enjoy this photo of the Great Egret we saw on June 29th.

I can hardly wait for fall migration to begin.

A Bright Spot On A Hot Day

It’s not every day you see a Snowy Egret. We heard there was a Snowy Egret hanging out at the E.L. Huie Land Application Facility, so we took a trip over to see it.

We saw the Snowy Egret, a Great Egret, a Yellow Crowned Night Heron, and various other birds common for the area. There was a report of a Little Blue Heron, but we could not locate it while we were there.

It’s been so hot lately, I can hardly wait for the fall migration to begin.
