I decided to wander around Orlando Wetlands Park this morning and found a wonderful surprise.
Two Gull-billed Terns were parked together right next to the main trail.
I’ve never been happy with my photos of this species before, and I think today’s photographs were my favorite.
Ducks are increasing in numbers with every visit. This morning there were bunches of both Blue-winged and Green-winged Teal, lots of Northern Pintail, one Northern Shoveler, one Wigeon, a Gadwall, many Ring-necked Ducks, and a few Lesser Scaup, not to mention Black-bellied Whistling-Ducks everywhere.
