January 20, 2010 - J.N. "Ding" Darling NWR, Part 2

Off to the wildlife drive, which costs $5 if you do not have an annual pass.  The wildlife drive is closed on Fridays.

Lots of open water with birds near and far.

We scored at the second turn with roseate spoonbills.

Some little blue herons and white ibis in the distance.

A couple photos of spoonbills flying.


An osprey in the distance.

White ibis and spoonbills with some shore birds.

A crop from the above photo showing some of the shore birds.

A killdeer in another crop.

More spoonbill photos.

We moved on.  Here are some American White Pelicans and one looks like he is a unicorn.

Lots of pelicans, though this day we saw no brown pelicans, just white ones.

Yes, that pelican does have a horn.

These flowers are really lovely.
