Wastewater Birds – Part Two


More bird photos selected from four days helping the Audubon Advocate students on their first birding experience held at the West Regional Wastewater Treatment Plant.

Red-winged Blackbird [female] (Agelaius phoeniceus)

Red-winged Blackbird [male] (Agelaius phoeniceus)

River Otter (Lontra canadensis) mom trying to move her pups. She would carry one a distance, leave it, than return for the other, while the pup she had moved previously would follow her back. It must have been very frustrating for her while showing how attached the pups were to mom.

Limpkin (Aramus guarauna)

Glossy Ibis (Plegadis falcinellus) and Limpkin (Aramus guarauna)

Anhinga [female] (Anhinga anhinga)

Anhinga [male] (Anhinga anhinga)
