Summer Daze

Aug 20, 2016 by Janine |
Summer isn't great for birds in South Florida, but we do have some that stay almost year round.

Great crested flycatcher.



The wrens have stayed throughout the summer.



The first dribs and drabs of migration are appearing. Had an early hummingbird in the yard a few weeks ago.



Another less welcome visitor to the yard. The brown basilisk, an invasive species. I worry that he will gobble up my caterpillars as well as smaller, native lizards like skinks and anoles.



Leopard Frogs



Lots of fawns at Riverbend







Pileated woodpecker



Red-bellied woodpecker



Some kind of Boletus mushroom. Lots of different mushrooms popping up with all the rain we've had.
