Their eyes are freaking me out!
Greater Flamingos the San Diego Safari Park.
A Black-necked Stilt showing off it’s long legs like a model during fashion week. It’s walking the mud runway modeling this season’s latest feathers.
On another note, you don’t always get to see their feet, so it’s cool to get a shot like this.
I love American Avocets; they are such beautiful birds. Their heads are bright spots of color amongst the dull greenish-gray of the swampy areas where they hang out.
The day I took this it was really cloudy so the color is pretty muted compared to what they normally look like.
A Marbled Godwit looking for dinner in gross water in a lagoon inlet. Reminds me of people hunting crawdads when I was a kid. I never really liked anything anything that would be in water this gross. Who knows what you are eating?!?
You can’t see it, but this is right under a train bridge and behind an office parking lot. I couldn’t help feel bad for the poor birds trying to fish in this gross water under moving trains. Makes me feel bad that our actions make their lives harder.
Life finds a way.

A Marbled Godwit in Carlsbad.
Alice thought she had never seen such a curious croquet-ground in her life; it was all ridges and furrows; the balls were live hedgehogs, the mallets live flamingoes, and the soldiers had to double themselves up and to stand on their hands and feet, to make the arches.

Greater Flamingos at the San Diego Safari Park.
I was at the San Diego Safari Park last week and caught these flamingos doing their fancy mating dance…. which basically looks like a group of flamingos crammed together about to get onto a crowded subway train.
