December 2017 Outtakes!

A collection of photos that didn’t quite make the blog. Roll over each photo to see captions, click to enlarge…

End of Summer 2017 Outtakes

Autumn has “officially” started, at least in the astronomical sense. The effects of Hurricane Irma on our area parks are continuing to be dealt with, and the shorter days will eventually lead to cooler temperatures (although the heat index was near 100 this week). Here are several photos taken the second half of this Summer that never made their way into the blog.

Willet resting on the beach at Indialantic, FL.
Immature Royal Tern at Indialantic, FL.
Sanderling (and Ruddy Turnstones) at Juan Ponce de Leon Landing.
Immature Purple Gallinule (alternate view) at Orlando Wetlands Park.
Young Roseate Spoonbill at the Melbourne-Tillman Canal, Palm Bay, FL.


I’ve already had my first birding adventure of the Fall. Stay tuned for that, coming soon!

Spring Outtakes 2016

Some outtakes from the spring, so far!


December Outtakes

Hello! Merry Christmas and happy holidays to everyone! There have been a series of technical issues here at the Lonely Birder blog, but I have ironed most of that out. Please, enjoy these outtakes from my December birding in and around central Florida!


I hope you are having a great holiday, whatever you choose to celebrate! If I don’t get to blog before the end of the year, Happy New Year, too!
