Bewitched by Florida Fowl

Male Osprey fishing from light pole at the beach
                                                                  
Just a few of our local birds and a common and daily sight for us. They are not "common" birds though but "bewitching birds" as I never get tired of seeing them.
Gulls fighting over a jelly fish

Gull

Heron

Heron

Not sure, does any one know the name of this bird? the gull family I think

Speckled Pigeon, not a common sight on the beach, but there he was with a dozen or so cousins
Is a limping pigeon human toed?

If a pigeon says "ribbit" is it a pigeon toad?

Is an insane pigeon "cooooo cooooo"?

What does a pigeon con man call their mark?

Oh! You wanted FUNNY pigeon jokes. Sorry.

Wow---I love this post, Sandra.. It is TERRIFIC.... That fighting gull picture is great --but the one which caught my attention was the heron with its reflection in the water.. AWESOME... You should enter that one in Joan's contest this month.
Hugs,

Great set Sandra i think the gull is in fact a Sandwich Tern juvenile I think. Really like the gulls fighting over jellyfish too

Phenomenal photos ... what a sight to have available.

My favorite is the heron, your pictures are just so stunning! You even got that little bit of deep red on the back of his neck! And the reflection in super!!! Next favorite is that cute little unidentified bird. And that pigeon DOES look like he's limping, just to suit your first joke! Matter of fact, when I started reading that joke, I thought this pigeon was limping, then realized it was a joke!! Well, you know I go bonkers over birds!!

Beautiful shots of the birds. I love the first one of the Osprey. I'm not familiar with that one but it looks it's got some wicked talons on it.

These are all terrific Sandra!! I love the watery reflections and the first is powerful. I especially love the charming (2nd to last one) but not familar..the sand and beach stuff is sooo pretty!! I enjoy doves (almost had to take one out of my cats mouth yesterday, but she dropped it) (sigh)

I love these, all of the birds are beautiful. I especially like the lone gull and the tern since they look different from the ones here.

I really like the heron, that's a great reflection.

Wonderful shot of the osprey. I have spent summers taking photos of ospreys and never gotten this close. Very cool.

Deb said...
