One of the fun things about the condo is that we are in the flight path. The air flows from the west across Clearwater Harbor and an updraft is created as it hits shore. The birds take advantage of this to catch a lift. The Brown Pelicans are quite fond of soaring along the shoreline to gain some lift and then fly out to look for fish.
Great Egrets do not soar, but they do fly thought the corridor.
Likewise, Fish Crows are always flying through the area.
In this case one is harassing a Turkey Vulture.
This was a case of shoot first and ask questions later. It turns out to be a juvenile Red-shouldered Hawk.
We get lots of White Ibis flying through. They are usually so fast that by the time I pick up my camera, they are gone!
There are lots and lots of Osprey.
Here is a group of Roseate Spoonbills.
And another White Ibis.
Sometimes we even have flying fish come through!
Stop by again. I’ll have more to show.
