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.

The Wood Storks are back!

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.

  1. That is a great alligator pic! I love the turtles too… Watching the birds fish is quite entertaining. It is good news to know you were not hurt worse in your falls and are back out in nature! Many of us LOVE your nature journal and enjoy learning about our animal friends. ♡
