Residents @ Robinson Preserve


These are all from the order of Circoniiformes, which include cranes and herons. I have not clue which these are, but TexWisGirl will tell you when she reads this. I took these when they first opened the preserve.

UPDATE: TexWisGirl came through with the names. Above and below is a Juvinile Night Heron.. that means he is a Teen Heron.



and above and below is a Reddish Egret...



Boo! from PicMonkey fever

Interesting bird photography. Thanks for sharing.

TexWisGirl said...

boo to you too! :)

the first one is definitely a juvenile night-heron. by the long neck, i'd say a yellow-crowned night heron.

the second is a GORGEOUS reddish egret. MAN, i'd love to see one of those! SO beautiful!!!

Even with your laptop not working you manage to have a fun post.
I always enjoy coming here to see what's happening in Florida.

I have that same PicMonkey fever...hopefully it will not cost to much when they start charging...it will depend on how addicted I am if I stay with it. The egret is amazing...I could sit and bird watch all day. I get a kick out of the cranes around where I live...they are adapting to city living.

Michaele said...

Really awsome shots! That TWGirl really is helpful isn't she?

Rose said...

The PicMonkey strikes yet again!

It looks like it might be a wee bit windy when you took that second shot of the Reddish Egret.

Ann said...

Great shots, I love the ones of the Reddish Egret.
Very cool PicMonkey picture. You are having fun with that aren't you
