Invasive exotic of south Florida. Seen in Everglades National Park
Barred Owl in a cypress dome in Everglades National Park
Juvenile found sleeping in hedge row at night. This species is an established invasive exotic to the region.
Same individual and location as my other observation, but seen on different days.
Sadly, this was the only amphibian I saw on my trip to Florida. Anyone want to hazard a guess as to what sort of frog it once was? Note the long legs - it would have been a good jumper.
I won't give the name of the hotel this was in, although it looks like that hotel might have since closed, anyway. The lighter spot on the back makes me think it's a German roach, as it matches this picture: http://bugguide.net/node/view/370376 but that's as far as my ID'ing process has gone.
Immature Cattle Egret - followed us for a bit. VERY cute. It was in front of a fast food restaurant.
This is supposed to be a Purple Martin house, but I counted 8 House Sparrows nests, 1 European Starling, and just this one Purple Martin. *sigh.*
I'm sure it's pure anthropomorphizing, but the expression on the martin's face just seems priceless. "Well, there goes the neighborhood!"
