This is the time of year that the Fireflag plants are in full bloom. And no one enjoys those luscious purple blossoms more than the iridescent Purple Gallinules! I love to watch them balancing along the narrow Fireflag stems, as if on a tightrope . . . just to get at those yummy flowers.
The Great Egret hatchlings are getting bigger every day!! There are quite a few nests this year (yay!) so we’re seeing chicks at all different stages of growth, including the slightly older ones (top photos) and the more recently hatched (bottom photos).
