Back Again

To the Viera Wetlands and Click Ponds, that is. There really are alot of great places to go birding around here, but the wetlands are really close. 
Glossy Ibis
Click Ponds
Glossy Ibis can found regularly at both the Click Ponds and the wetlands. This beautiful bird is most often found foraging in the mud or shallow waters along the shores of the wetlands. 

Red-bellied Woodpecker
Viera Wetlands

This Red-bellied Woodpecker, which actually has a red head, not a red belly, was enjoying a day of tree hopping.

Hooded Merganser
Viera Wetlands
  I spotted 4 Hooded Mergansers,
2 male and 2 female, all actively diving for food.


Viera Wetlands

Belted Kingfisher
Viera Wetlands
This Belted Kingfisher was on the prowl for his next meal.

Male Blue-winged Teal
Viera Wetlands
 This Teal was showing a little wing during his preening.

Female Blue-winged Teal
Viera Wetlands
This female Teal hanging out with a Coot, close to the other group of 1 male and 4 female teals. I wonder if they kicked her out.

Ring-necked Ducks
Click Ponds
 Not a decent photo, but this group of Ring-necked Ducks was spotted in the middle of the second pond.


I greatly appreciate your comments!
