"Feeding time"


El Segundo (Los Angeles), US
          

Hi all.

One of the more interesting bird behaviors I encountered on my recent trip to Florida was the feeding behavior of the Anhingas. The chick sticks it beak down the parent's throat rather than the reverse as is true of the Egrets and Herons. Here is a shot from the Venice Rookery in Florida taken with my 600 f/4 and 1.4tc on my D3s and Series 5 Gitzo with Wimberley Gimbal.



More shots from the trip are in my gallery here:

As always, any comments, criticism or advice very welcome.

JIM

Nice series Jim. I've watched Pelicans feed their young the same way. They must be affected by the mothers stomach gasses. As they appear very groggy & disorientated for awhile after feeding. I haven't observed our Darters, or Snake Birds, (Anhinga melanogaster) feeding. I'd imagine it would have the same affect on their young as well.....Scotty.

Hi Scotty.

Thanks for your most interesting observation on Pelican feeding behavior. I have to say that I did not notice the same grogginess in the Anhingas but then again I wasn't watching for it. Next time I get the opportunity I will pay closer attention to this detail.

I appreciate you taking the time to comment.

JIM

Hi Rick.

Thanks, it was great fun. I can't wait to go back. In fact I am thinking of moving to Florida just for all the birding opportunities.

Hi Jim. A very interesting behavior image and I appreciate the facts that you shared.
Thanks for posting. I would like to see more from this spot, as I get out that way occasionally. Actually I recall that you have posted from there before!

Tom

PS, I didn't see the other pics at first. Nice. Also, I was thinking they were shot in California, where you live. But I am interested in the Venice Rookery and going to Florida is a possibility for me. I probably shouldn't post when I am so sleepy. I should have read more closely or realized that there are no rookeries or birds like this in Venice, Ca. Duh!

Hi Tom.

Thanks. In my original post for this thread I posted a link to my gallery on Nikonians that has more of my Venice Rookery shots. I have also made a couple of other posts already from the Venice Rookery.

By all means if you can stop by there, especially in March through May, I would urge you to do so. I always enjoy your photos.

JIM
