This morning I went to Orlando Wetlands Park. I was hoping to see the Vermilion Flycatchers that were seen there this past November, and I found both without much difficulty. They’re such a beautiful red I can’t miss them even with my red-green colorblindness.

They were pretty far a way, but since they’re such pretty birds I decided to show you a photo from the same location last year when one was much closer. Vultures were pretty photogenic this morning, especially a couple Black Vultures picking on the remains of a turtle.

And a Belted Kingfisher decided to land on a perch very close to me, then immediately saw me and took off; thankfully I got this photo as she was leaving. Other highlights were a Red-shouldered Hawk and Limpkins
