The Happiest Birds on Earth

Disney World has lots of birds. All different kinds. Except for Pelicans. And they are used to being close to people. The gulls get quite a few free lunches, taking advantage of people not paying attention. What little opportunists they are! While walking from ride to ride I did a little bird watching, although I have no idea what some of them are. Here are a few from the Magic Kingdom.
This Snowy Egret liked being the center of attention, as long as nobody got too close. They are beautiful birds.

I don't know what these birds are, but they made me laugh. They looked like they could be in one of Disney's cartoons.

These two gulls were catching cheerios in midair that a little boy was throwing off the side of a ferry boat heading to the Magic Kingdom.

What are you looking at?!? I'm busy looking for food, so no pictures please...
Hope you enjoyed these Disney birds. I sure did. We found lots of Pelicans at the beach later in our travels, so I'll post those another day. I love Pelicans...

  1. I suspect those birds are the happiest on earth! You did a great job capturing them and their terrific expressions. I have to say I will never look at seagulls without thinking of that great scene from Finding Nemo! "Mine, mine, mine!"
