Isn't she pretty?
Although this bird has a bright red head, he (or she) is a Red-bellied Woodpecker. I had never seen the distinct red belly before this trip but you can see it in several of the above photos!
We think this is a Red-tailed Hawk, probably a juvenile.
We also thought this was a Red-tailed Hawk which is the most common hawk down in Fl (and here as well). Its position high in the pine tree is this hawk's preferred high position.
A frequent visitor to the backyard was this beautiful coyote who looks particularly well fed. One morning (while I was still asleep), two coyotes meandered up to the bird feeder for a closer look.
This cute little Gray Squirrel politely only ate under the feeder not like our northern squirrels who pride themselves on being able to get into any feeder!! Their Florida Fox Squirrel (monkey squirrel) is not as polite!
Chipping Sparrows were also frequent visitors to the feeder but usually stayed at ground level.
This was my very red sunrise the day I left for Florida!!
