Nature Walks: Wakodahatchee and Green Cay Wetlands


Natural Walks: Wakodahatchee & Green Cay Wetlands

The spring weather is warm and humid here.  I get a little wacky in the heat, but still managed to get out, once again, and go bird-watching, etc. at these amazing wetlands. Saw an assortment of birds, one rabbit and five gators (two babies).







And now onto Green Cay… where I saw five gators today!  And I HEARD an alligator.  It was loud and startling, kind of a grunting roar.




Well-fed and taking a long nap in the sun…

This was an excellent outing.  Mile for mile, these two wetlands provide photographers, tourists and the general public with a great taste of the wildlife that still thrives deep within the Everglades of South Florida.  The wetlands are free to the public and provide an excellent learning experience with a dash of exercise thrown in.

Hope you’re enjoying the photo documentaries.  Taking photos provides me with a creative outlet that I can share with others through this blog.  Bringing a little Florida Natural to you.  Enjoy your weekend.

    • Thank you, Sonia. I enjoy taking them. These birds are funny to watch, especially the nesting Wood Storks. The babies are well, very loud and hungry. The adults on the other hand are very stoic. It’s funny to observe. Parents will understand.

  2. A first for me…. I’ve never seen a photo of a contented alligator, and you’ve got a few! Expanding my mind, you are! Love, B.

    • There’s lots of birds and fish for their food supply here. That was one particularly chubby gator who was resting in the sunshine. The gator roar was surprising as they’re usually quite silent… unless it’s mating season!
