Next up we have a three-some of Black-bellied Whistling Ducks. These guys and gals are creating a lot of havoc around the wetlands. I can hear them whistling from the front porch and of course I can spot their white flight feather from a mile away.
Most of the railings are covered in bird feces of some type with an occasional raccoon scat mixed in. Today I found the feathers of what appears to be a Tri-colored Heron. I'm not sure if this was just preening or molting or what exactly, but the bird lost many a feather.
The best find of the day goes to my Nature Center Assistant. While the two of us were looking for some juvenile Wood Storks he spotted this owl pellet on the railing. I love owl pellets and dissecting them is always fun. Usually they have not only bones but a lot of fur mixed in. This pellet was almost completely made of bones.
