Mixed Activity Out Today
It was still a recovery day from the heavy rains and winds for much of the wildlife over by the marsh this afternoon.
Some birds were still just sitting in trees looking confused and exhausted, while others were out in full force hunting for food.
There were a few alligators around but they were not doing much and they seemed as shocked as everyone else about the conditions of things. The water is super high everywhere and even at low tide, the water level in the salt marsh remained high. It was almost as if there wasn’t a low tide at all anymore. Impossible, but that’s how it appeared.
Most of what we saw out there today was some egrets, blue herons, ibis, and ospreys flying around and searching for a meal.
Here are a few egrets from today, doing their best I’m sure under the circumstances.
