last 3 from our day at Circle B, a beautiful sunny and warm day, awesome wildlife, with a wonderful friend ..... a day to remember for sure. After treating us to lunch, Nanc then took us to meet sweet Amy Wub, a beauty and just as sweet as our Nancy. hug
Thank-you Nanc for treating Allie and I to a tour and providing us the opportunity to see so much we'd never otherwise see. Meeting you was the icing on the cake. Smile

Laurie, wooohoooo! oh I love the pictures. That mystery bird is a Pied-billed Grebe I think. When I loaded the pictures on my computer I thought it was a pair of Grebes there. I will put mine up and see what you think. You got such great shots. Cheers The memories are just rushing through my mind. I am reliving and enjoying that day. I loved meeting you and Allie. Circle B was so much more fun for me with you two there. hug

Grebe. we were facing the sun so it was hard to see there.

:hello: Nanc, please do post some of your pics, I'm sure you caught things that I did not.....especially that critter that crossed our path at the end of our hike, Green LOL I only got one of that and it is blurry.....don't have Allie's pics yet.

Yes! Grebe....that's what I was guessing, you're right the sun was very bright on that side of the path. A cutie though. Wub Your shot is much better than mine Left thumb up

Laurie, my pictures are basically the same as you got!! No surprise there. Titter
That is definitely a Tri-colored Heron you posted first.
I think the bird on the path was an American Bittern like we talked about. My pic of it is not clear. Allie's eagle eyes were great and spotting it up out of the reeds was great. Too far to get clearly. It has the right posture and yellow/greenish legs .

Thanks for the bearstudy info and groundhog predictions Lori. Smile
Cute pups in the pic & sweet vid of the baby grebe.

Lovely "Good evening" COTD Laurie. Smile
Excellent prediction on when spring will arrive! Titter
I'm fairly certain that when you get a new pc or laptop you will wonder why you were enthralled with XP for so long. I don't miss the BSOD's one bit.
Beautiful pics from your Circle B visit. Cool pic of the Bittern with the itch and the sunnin' gator. So many lovely birds in that area.
That is a Heron's nest, and a lot more sticks on that one than some that I've seen around here.

Thanks for the pics of the raven/crow, magpie, and EFOTD Judy. Smile
The crows on the Estonian cam are not the same as the crows that we have here. The Ravens look very similar to ours though. (Fresh snow on the cam tonight.)
You can tell which eagles have been in the area many times before by how tattered their tail feathers are. The Ravens especially like to tug on those. Titter

Cute pic of the Pied-bill Grebe & nice shot of the American Bittern Nanc. Smile
That must have been fun showing Allie & Laurie some of the local residents.
