Marsh Variety

On a return trip to the Audubon Garden at Magnolia Plantation I was able to focus more on the non-heron activity. Their nesting activity was still amazing to watch, but these birds also caught my eye.

A number of Blue-winged Teals were zipping about, mostly ignoring the Red-Shouldered Hawks watching from the trees.

This Ruby-crowned Kinglet was one of a variety of elusive small birds darting through the thick underbrush.

On this visit the only Woodpecker I saw was this Red-bellied, nicely offset by the Spanish Moss.
