I almost felt sorry for the birds at this particular location. I would have left too as this Tricolored Heron does. Lots of crap on the ground. Looks like a trash site. I´ve croped away the worst part. Still there is a tire and other junk stuff laying there.  The good thing was that it was not a common sighting. :(

  6. Yeah, I was a little shocked when I punched these up to a larger size and saw all the clutter on the shoreline. That's reality though, even in paradise. Such a spectacular bird too, I think the image makes a good reminder for us to clean up our trashy lifestyles and give these creatures an even break!

  10. I guess no country is safe from the idiots who pollute! (We sure have our share of them around here.) Your bird pictures are great though, and to be honest, I wouldn't have noticed the pollution if you hadn't pointed it out, because I was so busy looking at the beautiful tri-color.

I love comments so please write something. I usually responds to everyone on their own blogs. But nowadays I often find it impossible to comment on many blogs or on Google+. Often the word verifications is unreadable. And after three times I give up. Other times the systems seems to think I am a spammer. Lots of bloggers loose comments that way. :( So, if you don´t see me comment on your blog that is the reason.
