First stop, Bystere Lake: Last year I had luck here, also on 6/30, with the Egyptian Geese sighting. This year, it was a pair of belted kingfishers (very early). I also enjoyed watching about 50 sandhill cranes take off from the other side of the lake and fly over my head.
Also got a few good shots of him soaring...
Next, went to Linda Pederson, Jenkins Creek, Bayport, and Pine Island along the beach areas, but nothing of note. Once it is afternoon the birding slows down significantly. So, I went back inland to a few lakes: Spring Lake, Neff Lake, and Mountain Lake, all north of Dade City. The most interesting sighting of the three lakes were these two fighting black-bellied whistling ducks in a group of about 25.
After that, at Lockhart/Powerline Roads, just found the two adults of kingbird family. I know it was about time for the baby to leave. A nice way to end the day, and probably the last good birding until Fall. Also pictured is a Loggerhead Shrike along Kettering Road nearby.
