Some kind of bird ballet.....

All photos were taken at the Ellie Schiller Homosassa Wildlife State Park, which you can find here.  I will have more to share about this place. It was a lot of fun to see all these beautiful birds, many of them who are wild and fly in just for feeding time.  I have tried to identify the birds but please correct me if I am wrong.

One of our stars is the Great White Heron, along with her chorus, the White Ibis'.

Jumping into the arms of her prince, again, a White Ibis.

Wood Stork, definitely a diva!

Two photos of the Anhinga, the same bird above and below displaying her perfect form.

Waiting in the wings, a Barred Owl.

A lovely ballet pose displayed by the Wood Stork.

A Mute Swan stretching her toes and getting ready to jump in.

Our White Ibis posing for the cameras back stage, deciding to give the paparazzi her back view.

The Brown Pelican is a little late for her cue.

Red-shouldered Hawk very vocal.  Well, you sometimes get a heckler in the audience.

The Crested Caracas was wearing a beautiful costume.

I am stretching here but I think this may be a Black-crowned Night Heron, who decided to fly over the stage.  She needed no wires.

White Pelicans about to make their entrance.

Mute and Black Swan now glad the performance is over and taking a well deserved rest.
