Eastern Meadowlark, DuPuis WEMA Field Trip February 27, 2011

Some Audubon friends and I visited DuPuis Wildlife and Environmental Management Area (WEMA) this morning, to check on two Bald Eagle nests. The bird in the lead photo is an Eastern Meadowlark.

Birds Doing Things

Royal Tern

Members of my Audubon chapter are conducting a shorebird survey on ocean beaches and the Indian River Lagoon. I accompanied one group yesterday. We traveled by pontoon boat to several sandbars and islands in the lagoon. Eight-hundred photos later, I decided this post would feature birds doing interesting things, or at least looking interesting, rather than merely static shots.
