What a sweet spot to go birding. I especially like to visit this area during the summer time - the area being surrounded by water and shaded by the trees always makes it feel at least 10 degrees cooler and that, my friend, is a great bonus in the Florida summer heat.
|First sightings were in the parking lot - many more warblers were seen zipping about the tree tops - a bit fast for me to capture.|
|A Tuffed Titmouse with a companion.|
|The Carolina Wren was singing its best tune.|
|A few Great Egret were seen across the way - nesting in the trees.|
|Beautiful fauna grows in the shady waterways.|
|Doesn't that look appealing? And, no John, I wasn't talking about you. :)|
|The resident Black-crowned Night Heron in his blue suit.|
|Those eyes, oh my!|
|A Water Moccasin - well camouflaged.|
|The Palm Warbler bid us farewell.|
