More Recent Birds

Here are some more from my neighborhood.

A pair of black vultures are on the clean-up crew.

Juvenile roseate spoonbills can be identified by their light pink colors and the fuzz that goes up their necks and heads all the way to their eyes.

A female anhinga flew past.  Females have brown necks, males are black.

Green herons can lift their lift their crests for a punk look or lower it for a sleek profile.

A white egret lifts its flaps to come in for a landing.

I see the same clean-up crew here in San Antonio. More wonderful bird photos. Our Green Herons must be vacationing in Florida. The Anhingas never fly as far north as SD.

Beautiful bird shots and I have been enjoying them on FB, too.
