Now This Is Florida Prospecting!

By
Real Estate Agent

This bird was 'prospecting' for food the other day on a lake in Florida in quite a fascinating manner. He would use his beak and one leg to churn the water and lake bed, and his wing to direct the 'flow of traffic' to his mouth. The poor guy sure isn't very handsome, but he was determined and never deviated.

Susie,

Great shots. He isn't the most handsome, but I'm sure his personality makes up for it :)

Best regards,

Hi Susie, Wonderful photos and I was thinking, that bird is stone ugly but I wasn't going to say so until I read a comment above and figured it was OK.

Cool photos, Susie/. Looks like he has a pretty good system that works. How neat to capture him in action.

As I was scrolling down, I was thinking, "That is one ugly bird."  Scott posted it before I could.

Thank you for the comments and compliments. Yes, the poor bird is ugly!! But he was interesting to watch so I hardly noticed his looks until I looked at the photos.

I must say that the bird has one of those faces that only a mother could love. Cool pix though...
