Thanks Machi, and Musicwolf, no I must try and get to Circle B soon, thanks for the tip!

James - have you been to the Circle B Bar Reserve in Lakeland? One of the best birding sites in Florida imo. I saw my only little Wilson's Snipe there - that's why I thought of it.

It is so nice to have a PN member to share such great photos of Florida wildlife. I still haven't seen this one!

Joshua I was just leaving wetlands and glanced to my side and saw this little beauty in a pile of wood debris. Approached slowly and it watched me and jumped from side to side but did not fly away. Felt very lucky and I too love the shots. Thank you!

Oh my gosh! Those are such skittish birds; how did you manage such great shots!!!
