The Pandemic Diaries - Weeks #45 & #46

Wednesday, February 10, 2021

My new interest while pandemicking is birding - taking photos of birds, watching them, trying to identifying them.

Something to do, keeps me busy, keeps my brain active, and gives me a reason to go for walks.

    Our latest bird thrill was finding a bald eagle's nest. They are huge. We have them fly over our house but have never built here. We get lots of hawks and owls.

    I love the pictures. In california we often saw the pelicans dive bombing the water. Egrets and herons are plentiful here a I love to watch the heron take off slowly a then glide over the ponds

    What a great treat, to see all your birding pictures!! You have a positive talent for finding the very best places to stay, and are clearly enjoying this one to the max!!

    I pulled out my Stokes Birds (sitting on the window sill next to the kitchen table, natch, with my binoculars) and I'm wondering whether this gorgeous hawk is a broad winged hawk? About 15", tail length 3/4 wing width, wing length about twice width -- and those horizontal breast bars. Hawks are notoriously difficult to ID because there are so many "morphs" with different and confusing variations!!

    Love the osprey nests, the ibises and the whole wetlands ambiance . . . FLOWERS growing outside!!!

    So much to comment on.
    St Augustine - This was my answer once to a trivia question and it was called wrong. (Answer Jamestown)
    Huh? St Augustine 1565 & Jamestown 1607

    Amazing that you can get so close. Especially the hawk. I've never seen one at eye level.

    Maybe the Osprey learned that a bit of plastic would keep the twigs dry during rain?
    Like a tarp?
