Birds of the Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary


Ibis


Mourning dove


Anhinga


Black-crowned night heron


Great white egret


Three of a large group of wild turkeys outside the sanctuary.
No wood storks or green heron during my visit, and 
the great blue herons were too far away for decent pix.

Wonderful photos of all of the birds Jack!

That is a big variety of birds all beautifully photographed.

Quite a mix of birds. I know of a photoblogger who does the RV snowbird thing with her husband through the winter, and they enjoy hiking trails, so I've seen quite a number of anhingas in her posts.

It is surprising that there were no wood storks there, Jack!

Nice photos, Jack, a change from your usual portraits. The Great White Egret is the only one we see in England. It used to be very rare but is now seen quite often (if you know where to look).

These are great shots, especially the birds we don't see around here: ibis and anhinga. The anginga was putting on a nice show for you. It has some beautiful feathers.

Lovely photos. The dove is pretty. We don't have that kind.
