A variety of birds today
3

Took the camera on the morning bike ride along the river trail. Didn't expect to see much but once I stopped and got off the bike in a couple of locations the birds were there, just had to watch and wait.

First to show was a Mockingbird. Usually very active and dashing from perch to perch, but this one was basking in the morning sun.

At my next stop, a small lake just off the trail, this Blue Heron was patiently waiting for a fish to make a wrong move. Without direct sunlight the blue color shows up well.

Not far from the Blue Heron was a flock of Mallards feeding in the shallow water. Mixed in with the flotilla was this ringer, an American Coot.

The Mallards took flight and left the Coot behind.

The Blue Heron caught a fish he couldn't readily swallow and didn't stick around for me to get a picture.

Nice morning to be out.
