CENTRAL FLORIDA CRITTER OF THE DAY:   Fish Crow (Corvus ossifragus)

Second year in a row that this species is building a nest in this same tree.  They can be  distinguished from the American Crow by their call.

Shown on Florida Native Plant Longleaf Pine  (Pinus palustris)

I removed the sheet from the water system to find this guy hiding on the softener tank.  It’s been several years since I have seen one of these Florida native treefrogs.

Diet:  Beetles, crickets, caterpillars, beetle larvae, stinkbugs, other small invertebrates.
