Birding Eastern Hernando - June 1, 2016

Moving over to the other side of the county, I was able to end the day with a total of 65 species for June Challenge. I heard 5 others, but could not count these unless seen.  At least I know they are out there for next time. Not bad for being at work the majority of the day!
Best photo of the day: Red-shoudered Hawk up close, watching me watching birds at Bystre Lake.

After work, McKethan Lake was a great spot to end the day.  I saw a swallow-tailed kite acting like a skimmer and diving into the water to skim the surface (for bugs?) Also found a pair of summer tanagers.  The male was really looking out for the female and being protective of her following me as I walked around looking for her.
