We had a pretty fun morning at Wekiwa Springs State Park. My dad wanted to find Bachman’s Sparrows, I wanted Red-headed Woodpeckers, and we both wanted to find Short-tailed Hawks. We went home photographing two out of three. We found two Red-headed Woodpeckers, and one landed not too far from us and put on quite a display.
A couple Bachman’s Sparrows showed up right nearby, which was very convenient. One landed on a branch close to my father but far away from me, so my photos are pretty heavily cropped.
But we also had saw some other fun birds. In particular, a Yellow-throated Vireo and a Prairie Warbler.
And we didn’t just find birds. Other animals were also there just waiting to be photographed. A Zebra Swallowtail and a White-tailed Deer both made an appearance.
