For a Day That Started Out So Crappy …

… this one sure did end up being nice. As soon as I saw some bright sky in the west following some awful rain and wind, I headed out to Fort Pickens.

When I first got there it was still overcast and gray.  And there were some pretty soggy, not very happy,  birds.

Yeah-I'm-wet

But when I moved down to the tree with the impossible nest, things picked up. It appears that the determined nest-builder has a friend. Boyfriend? Mate?  Too soon to tell. But they seem to be having fun … I think …

And then there was this GBH who just kept soaring through the scene.

And last, but not least, an entire flock of Cattle Egrets were passing through, on their way to who knows where. I  caught nine in this shot, but there were at least ten more.
