Here are some pics of our first couple of ventures into the park. There are a couple of new birds for me. So exciting! So beautiful!
Anhingas resemble cormorants from a distance but are much more colorful. This trail in the Glades takes you right through a nesting area for these large birds.
|female anhinga, these birds have webbed feet and must dive for food|
|nearby a gator sunning|
lots of turtles in among
the lily pads
|heres looking at you! took this from a distance but still looks kinda scary;)|
|the male is quite handsome with his black and white feathers|
|this resting female anhinga shows again how the eye color is subtle when not mating|
|little blue heron|
|just another egret;)|
Lots of American kestrels
