lurking alligator near hotel in daphne
Today we joined a bus tour of Bayou La Batre, Coden, and the Grand Bay Savannah. The
weather was really beautiful. Too beautiful for a fall-out. Migrants were few and far
between, and warblers were represented by a few pitiful Pine Warblers. There was an
uncooperative White-eyed Vireo, quite a few Catbirds, and a couple of female
Blue Grosbeaks. A better show was put on by some of the regulars. Good views of
an Osprey flying overhead with the sun shining through its feathers. A pair of Northern
Harriers dancing. Plenty of Kestrels. A lazy flyby from a young Bald Eagle. Tons
and tons of Red-headed Woodpeckers, including what appeared to be at least two entire
families including the mature adults and their fledged youngs, as well as scatterings and
posings of random Red-heads pretty much everywhere. Decent numbers of Downies and Red-
bellies, some well-lit enough to show the pink bellies. Plenty of Brown Nuthatches.
After our picnic lunch, we headed back to the meeting hall. I took DH to Gator Alley in
search of the HUGE gator but found only a couple of mid-sizers. Then, back at the hotel, I
found three more decent-sized gators. One of them appeared to be loitering in hopes that
someone would fall off the parking lot and into the gator mouth. Yum yum.
At the wine reception now but I wonder if the Chamber of Commerce folks drank all the wine,
since no drinks have made an appearance. Stay tuned.
A minute later: All I had to do was post my gripe and Voila, the wine came forward.
