Thanks to Jim Robertson & Gwen Williams for the Wakodahatchee recommendation. Great Blue Heron, Titusville Wood Storks, Delray Beach 5 Comments Jim Robertson 14 January 2018 at 3:44 pm 9 months ago Nice images Isabel. Come back in a few weeks after the eggs yet-to-be laid have hatched and it is neat to see the chicks sticking their long sharp beaks down the parent’s throat to obtain food.

Jim Taylor 14 January 2018 at 10:53 pm 9 months ago The only good thing that can be said about parent birds’ way of feeding their young is that it’s a lot more caring than the reptiles who simply abandon their offspring in the sand, on the shore, in the rushes, wherever. Bards are amazing creatures — their ability to operate in three dimensions, the sense of navigation, their ability to make tools, etc. — but their ways of feeding nestlings are not something I would recommend as an evolutionary example to follow.
