At one point I stopped the car and Shell and I walked into a wood stand where we saw and heard a Great-crested Flycatcher, and a couple of deer. Eastern Meadowlarks were also singing nearby, but no luck finding woodpeckers. A Loggerhead Shrike flew from a nearby perch and headed for the trees, and for a moment, its black-and-white profile raised our hopes of a RCW.
Still, we managed a couple nice photos of it (2) on way out. A Northern Mockingbird also posed long enough for a quick photo.
Just as we reached the exit a flock of (3) Brown-headed Nuthatches appeared beside the road, and I quickly tried to grab some documenting photos. A couple of the birds found us not threatening and fed nearby in the pines, where I managed a couple of keeper images.
As we returned to the car, Robin pointed to the west and alerted us to a group of fighter jets flying in formation. The Thunderbirds Airshow was going on in Punta Gordo, and the jets were using the WMA as a staging area. So we got to sit back and watch as groups of jets flew in formation and passed nearby!
Leaving the area we saw (3) Glossy Ibis feeding in a ditch next to the road. However, I was too slow in getting out of the car to get any pics. Bummer!
