We had family visiting from south Fla this week and took them out in the boat and I got a couple of pic's of shore type birds.

Egrets: (One who was stealing fish from a fisherman's bait bucket! The man and his young son had walked a little ways down the beach to fish, and had forgotten to cover their bait so this guy had a free lunch!)

Lee Anne: We have a couple of different types of Egret's here, some are small but a couple are large birds. The one in the photo above is called the Great Egret which gets to 39" tall and has a yellow beak. The Snowy Egret's pictured below have black beaks and legs and stand @ 24" tall:

We drove about an hour south to Cocoa Beach to show my sister and her husband around the area because they want to retire there in a few years. We went to a great restaurant on the water and when we were leaving I spotted this Wood Stork on top of a light pole:

Not a bird photo but on the way back north to Daytona Beach we stopped at a canal where Manatee's seem to congregate. There were lots of the big critters in the water but boats coming back into the dock kept them going below the surface and I wasn't able to get any good pic's of them. I did manage to get one shot of this little Manatee with his nose out of the water. It's kinda hard to see but I thought I'd share anyway.

Last ones for me for now. At the same canal yesterday ... a Roseate Spoonbill feeding along the shallows:

I love the Manatee's too and we see them occasionally when we are out in our boat. We see the Porpoises most often but at certain times of the year we spot a manatee or two.

To the people who appreciate it, I give a manatee for a year as a gift, once even as a wedding present.

Connie: Is it from here? http://www.savethemanatee.org/

I adopted one for my youngest niece years ago when she was in elementary school and studying about sea life.

Yep, that is it....some people really like that rather than STUFF, especially when they have enough of it already. The last person I adopted for was near there so she got to go and see HER manatee.

I hope that boaters watch out for them. I don't like 'rocket jockeys' who show off. The whales get hit by boats here, big ones who couldn't see them, but it is sad.

I just don't know why we can't co-habitat.

Florida's waterways have strict Manatee Zones with slow to idle speed limits for boaters. Some of the fishermen don't like the speed zones because they usually want to get to and from their ocean fishing grounds quickly. I've seen Manatees with the deep gouges from boat propellers ... it isn't pretty. Luckily some of those hit by boats are rehabbed and do recover but many have been lost to injuries incurred by boat propellers.

I don't like going fast in a boat ... even in the zones where there are no Manatee's present. We see Porpoises all the time when we are out but I guess they are faster than Manatee's and can get out of the way quickly.

The Scrub Jays are back. First noticed the other evening when I saw one flying away after it ate some figs in my tree. And was making a big fuss today when the other birds wouldn't go away and let it have its pick of the bird treats it wanted.

The Black-crested Titmouse is a regional variation of the Tufted Titmouse. I think this one was having a bad hair day or something.
