Nature Walk – Green Cay Summer Quiet

It’s August, it’s hot, but I still managed to get out.  The humidity has gone down a tad, so I wasn’t dripping too much after walking the two miles or so of this loop.  There wasn’t a huge variety of birds now, just the typical herons, egrets, ibis, anginas, and other wading birds.  As I was walking into a hammock, I saw a flash of blue from a Blue Jay, but it was moving too fast to get a photo.  The nesting season is long over and the heat keeps the birds from getting too overactive.  Here are some photos:

Well, that’s it for now, folks.  As you can see, my health has improved.  I’ve been walking and swimming… especially enjoying the swimming as I can keep outside AND keep cool.

Enjoy the rest of your summer season (or winter for the Southern latitudes!).

Hugs,
