Denizens of the air
These two birds have been coming around this feeder lately. I think they are female brown-headed cowbirds, but I don't know for sure. Their big beak looks like a grosbeak but I can't really identify them. The picture is quite blurry, sorry, this is beyond the capabilities of my little P&S camera.
This is the bird that was feeding on the dead catfish we found on the beach. Freda thinks it may be a turkey vulture. Since it was feeding on carrion, this is a distinct possibility, and it was a large bird as you can see...
Another shot of the turkey vulture.
This dragonfly happened into the frame when I was taking a photo of the back yard.
