Disney Wild!

I spent Sunday at Disney World. Joe was working and I got to see his performance (he dances on stilts) at the Lion King Festival. Then I spent the rest of the day trying to amass photographs of at least 20 wild birds at the theme park. I haven't had time to go over all of them yet, and with my poor mother-in-law in the hospital and me going to Stevens Point tomorrow (I even made the Stevens Point Journal!), I can't finish it up. But I did make my Disney goal--here are a few of the photos I took:
Would this be the last thing a fish ever sees?
Great Egrets are all over the place.
House Sparrow
Not a bird--but dragonflies were everywhere.Garden spiders are gorgeous.White Ibises are abundant.
First time I ever saw a Limpkin right in Disney World!
I don't know which lizard this is.
Black Vulture.
Great Blue Heron
Let sleeping ducks lie.
My Joey in front of the Animal Kingdom's joeys.
Wood Stork flying overhead.
Lousy picture of a gorgeous bird.
Mourning Dove
Is this a frittilary? (See comments for answer)
Another Mallard
