I could see bird activity down one of the dikes that divides the old rice field ponds where a canal widened a bit. The dike has varying heights of reeds at the edge which serves as a nice blind, but can interfere with a good shot. Hence the fuzz on the lower right of this image. The Cormorants took off just after I took this.
None of the images were great this day as the light was dull, but I saw a variety of activity. A few Wood Storks came and went, sometimes feeding and sometimes just standing around.
The light brightened a little as this Roseate Spoonbill worked his way to the far side of this canal.
For those of you who follow Ted at http://www.tpjPhoto.net, I got an image of him watching alligators for his Bad Day To Be A Fish post. He’s standing on the road that runs at the lower edge of the big pond.
