Nature Walk – Wakodahatchee Revisited

May 23, 2018

Oh, my gosh… going through my older blog posts, it looks like I haven’t done one of these Nature walks for over a month!  And most of that time I’ve been dealing with yet another bout of “illness” or ascension upgrades or whatever.  Each time it seems to take longer for me to recover and gain some strength.  The little mile-long walk today had me wobbling a bit, but I managed it by walking slow and taking lots of photos.  It was kind of funny but almost all the birds I photographed were actively grooming themselves, basically ignoring my presence.  And I did manage to see one alligator during the walk.  I will report that the number of visitors has dropped considerably.  There were plenty of parking spaces, but then again, today was the first day for 2.5 weeks that we had a hint of blue skies.  Florida has been dealing with a lot of rain and gray skies.  All of the local ponds are flush with water and I would imagine the various bushfires have been put out by the long series of thunderstorms.  And we’re due for some more from a small system that seems to be forming off the coast of Belize.  I hope it isn’t a tropical storm or worst…

Here are some photos from my walk…

The nesting cycle continues although the Great Blue Heron, Cormorants, and other birds seemed to have completed.  There were still young Cattle egrets, Tri-colored herons, young Egrets, and well-grown Wood Storks to be found.

Hopefully, I will be able to get out on some more of these outings.  It depends on the weather and my strength.  Meanwhile, for my readers in the United States, enjoy the upcoming Memorial Day weekend, the “official” beginning of summer here.

Kisses and hugs,
