Heat Back On

We had a bunch of rain, and more forecast soon, but today was nice and warm. Just a couple of birds out in the heat but worth sharing. Especially this Pied-billed Grebe which I discovered near home.

These birds are usually only Winter visitors for us. I did see a brood with a female many years ago but having them in Central Florida in July is a treat. Finally get to see them in full breeding plumage. This one was even calling which I had never heard before.

Over at Lake Lancaster, an Anhinga rested on the side of the water near the road. It was getting warmer as the day wore on and this bird gave out a tremendous yawn as I watched.


Maybe I should take a nap, too...
