My Ecology Trip to the Baylands (page 2)
|.||On top of the sign is a bird called a kite. By the way it flies, you can see why. It hovers in the air about 20 feet off the ground, then swoops down every now and then. I couldn't take a good picture while it was flying, because it beats its wings fast, and came out blurry.|
|These are marsh hawks. They are very far away, but these are zoomed in. They fly above the marshes, and dive for little rodents and other small animals.|
|.||This is a lone Pelican. They usually travel in a flock, using the same technique as the seagulls, but this one must have strayed. Pelicans use the pouch under their bill to scoop up fish, or other foods in the water.|
|These are geese. They were swimming around, not doing anything very exciting. Geese eat wetland plants, seeds, fish, and other small water animals.|
|Here is a seagull that is flapping its wings in the water. It may be defending its territory, stretching, or trying to impress the ladies|
That about all the information I have about the bayland birds. The rest of my pictures are more of all of these animals. If you want to see them, click on the polar bear.
