Nature Walks: Winter Wako Walk
It is winter here in Florida or what passes for winter hereabouts… the days are in the ’70s and nights are in the high ’50s to low ’60s, in other words, perfect for walking.
I made it to two of my favorite nearby wetlands, Wakodahatchee and Green Cay, saw lots of birds and two alligators — a good day. The skies were blue, the air crisp, and I was comfortable in my short sleeves, while other people were all bundled up. Guess my blood hasn’t thinned out enough yet. I feel much better in this cooler weather.
The mating/nesting season is getting underway. It was amusing to see Wood Storks quarreling with Anginas or Herons to see who would get the perfect nest site. The pond apple tree condos are very popular this year!
Well, hope you liked the quick tour of a couple of SE Florida wetlands. There are lots to see and most of the walking is done on boardwalks.
Remember, there is a lunar eclipse this weekend with a Super Moon. And enjoy your weekend!
