Today was a little bit slow. There were more signs of the imminent spring ready to burst forth. Lots of Red-winged Blackbirds were setting up territories. We have a large number of wintering blackbirds here, but only the resident ones will set up territories and display. They were choosing some of the ugliest perches around, so it’ll have to be another day for those photographs. At the end of the day, I stumbled across a roosting flyway. Many of the wading species will roost communally in small area. During the day they all disperse to feed, but right before night they fly back to the roosting area. If you can find the flyways that they take, just sit and watch for a while and hundreds of birds will fly past. Down here it was a mix of egrets, herons, and ibises. This Little Blue Heron was one of the birds that flew both close and low.
