This is one trip that I had heard about the year prior to joining the Caloosa Bird Club and it was with great anticipation that I boarded the bus to go to Green Cay.
What a beautiful setting with a lot of wildlife to observe, you be the judge....
|What a nice welcome this was!|
|So much ground to cover or should I say boardwalk....and so little time.|
|The wildlife is so close and feels quite comfortable just BEing. There were many walkers going by quickly, the birds/ducks don't seem to mind at all and might just be entertained by watching us.|
|Those turtles always make me smile with their 'uppitty' air about them.|
|Check my feet out - I bet you can't beat that!|
|Piggy back riding.|
|It was really sweet to come upon this shady little corner and to be able to watch the Painted Bunting feeding - they are such a bright palette.|
|A White Ibis with its breeding plumage.|
|Very cute and so delighted to be able to watch this little Common Gallinule Chick...ahem, ahem, sorry but this little guy is really a downy coot chick....my bad.|
|The elusive Least Bittern treated us to some nice sightings.|
|The Sora on the other end stayed well hidden.|
|The Red-winged Blackbirds sang all around us - showing their bright colors.|
|"Ahhhh....a good stretch always feels so good."|
|"Are you looking at me?"|
|The club's mascot.....a Green Heron|
What a great spot! www.pbcgov.com/parks/nature/green_cay_nature_center/
The next time you happen to be in Palm Beach County, I highly recommend a visit.
