This American Robin was an excellent photo model on a sunny day in Calgary, Alberta, Canada

I few interesting facts about these birds are that The American Robin is a known carrier for the West Nile virus. The Robin is able to hold the virus longer than other species, hence spreading it to more mosquitoes!
In the past, Robins were killed for their meat, believe it or not. However, they are now protected in the U.S. thanks to the Migratory Bird Act.

This male red-winged blackbird was making sure he was heard he called out.
This was taken on a sunny summer day just outside of Calgary, Canada

Male Red-winged Blackbirds fiercely defend their territories during the breeding season, spending more than a quarter of daylight hours in territory defense. He chases other males out of the territory and attacks nest predators, sometimes going after much larger animals, includ
ing horses bigger birds and people.

We watched this female Florida Softshell Turtle dig a hold and then after she lay her eggs she filled the hole back up with sand.

The softshell turtle is one of the largest freshwater turtle species in North America. They can be distinguished from other turtle species by their carapace. Unlike most other turtles, their shell is soft, flat, and rubbery. The turtle’s nose is long and piglike, and its feet are fully webbed. This helps the softshell turtle swim, since it spends most of its life in the water.

Taken in a wetlands in southern Florida.

This bird tested our patience on a sunny morning. He spent most of his time on the side of the path facing into the sun.
After I almost gave up he flew to the other side of the path. Then it took time for him to pop up to a blade of marsh grass that did not have other reeds in front of him.
He was busy singing for a girlfriend the whole day.

The Common Yellowthroat was one of the first bird species to be catalogued from the New World, when a specimen from Maryland was described by Linnaeus in 1766.

This photo was taken at Frank Lake which is south of Calgary, Alberta, Canada

I thought this smaller manatee was being affectionate and kissing his mother.
After reading about this behavior I found out that they greet each other with what look like kisses.

The Florida manatee is actually a sub-species of the West Indian manatee.

This photo was taken on Merritt Island, Florida
