I'm really struggling to get out ... so here's a stop gap picture. This little blue heron was photographed in January 2006 at Corkscrew Swamp, Florida - a wonderful reserve near Naples.
The reserve features a variety of habitat, with pine upland, wetland prairie, cypress forest and marsh - all viewable from a well maintained boardwalk, some 2.25 miles in circumference. Easy for photography, with many species comfortable with the observers presence. Bird species include wood stork, anhinga, painted bunting, red-shouldered hawk and a variety of warblers. In addition, alligator are also very likely to be observed!
