Space Coast Birding & Wildlife Festival Day 2

Iffy weather with grey skies and a cool wind.  It sure made the birds hunker down in the mangroves.  Not to be a dettered my group were all ready to make the most of it.  Personally I am waiting to photograph the Roseate Spoonbills that have been quite elusive at Black Point.  I was however, rewarded with a fairly decent sighting and a photograph of a Clapper Rail.  It was nice to get an image of the bird in its entirety.   All the images except the last two were photographed using the Panasonic Lumix G85 body with the Leica 100 – 400 mm. lens.  What an amazing combination.

Silhouettes at first light. 

Flight after flight of White Pelicans flew in to land and feast in the shallow waters of Black Point Drive

Missing Rosettes Spoonbills but there were enough Herons and Egrets and a decent Glossy Ibis.


 

Not to miss out on ducks the Northern Shoveler families were a lot of fun to photograph.

 

Finally here are two images that I posted earlier on FB that were captured using the new Panasonic Lumix FZ2500
