I've been meaning to check on this new trail off the main beaten path of Periwinkle Way - well, today was the day....come and see....
The entrance is toward the back of the playground, before you proceed check the map out.
The Frannie's preserve extension is outlined here - for today I chose the blue trail surrounding the water ponds.
Most of the paths are pretty much easy to follow, however the trails are not marked.
|One of the first ponds.|
First sign of wildlife - a White Ibis.
|Several Blue-gray Gnatcatchers and Palm Warblers were heard and seen.|
|This trail was a bit muddy and after a bit the trail was hard to spot - will have to return at a later time.|
|Another pond and another trail.|
|This trail was a flitter of Zebra Longwings....making it somewhat magical.|
|A few more White Ibis and....|
|a River Otter with its fish.|
|A Kingfisher was quite busy and vocal around this pond.|
|Not too far, a Red-shouldered Hawk with its keen eye.|
|The trails circle around the pond, a different view of those White Ibis.|
