Nature Walks, 11.30.2017 – Back to the Birds
After taking a few days… actually nearly two weeks off from visiting the wetlands, I was back at it, once again. The crowds were a wee bit thinner today, but a major holiday just ended and perhaps some of the snowbirds (two-legged ones) went back to New York.
I visited both Wakodahatchee and Green Cay this morning and was blessed with two alligator sightings, as well as some wood storks, a Roseate Spoonbill (too distant to photograph), a handsome blue jay and the usual suspects, including coots, marsh hens, egrets, herons, ducks, and turtles.
Just walking without pain was nice. I’ve had a few falls of late, but haven’t broken anything, just got a few bruises. Slippery tile floors and moving too fast, I guess. Still, in observing some of my fellow walkers, I’m doing pretty well for a “senior”. Don’t look it or act it, of course, although I don’t dye my hair, either.
Here are some more photos. Just for fun, I thought I would throw in a couple of black and whites since my photo editor allows it.
That’s all folks!
