Now here is a sight most of you probably wouldn’t think you’d see in FL.
Most people don’t realize that FL is has a large cattle population. It’s not unusual to see cattle being moved from pasture to pasture here in the Black Hammock. We only have small herds here, the pastures are only 20 acres or so….and they must be moved often so there is something for them to eat and to allow the grass to grow. It’s hard to believe…we are only 20 minutes from downtown Orlando…but we live in a nice rural area….though it is getting smaller and smaller.
These Ibis can be found in many yards or canals.
I believe this is a Great Egret. I have 2 pictures that show the color near his eye but can’t find anything about it online or in my bird book. I guess it must be in breeding form.
This Red Shouldered Hawk was watching the herd of cattle. I don’t know if it had it’s eye on the Cattle Egrets or hoping they’d kick up a rodent.
That was our ride for today.
