We began our trip on a calm, sunny morning with a group of 16 enthusiastic birders.
The trip was led by Irene-Eva Ries, Certified Florida Master Naturalist. Eva did a splendid job of sharing her knowledge of bird species and the Florida habitat. Eva pointed out some beautiful wildflowers and we saw a group of wild Florida Poinsettias. Along the way we noticed the intricate web of a Zipper Weaver Spider.
Our birding adventure included some exciting finds; we were followed by a group of gregarious Florida Scrub Jays. We saw two Eagles perched on a tree near a large nest and later we spotted an Eagle trying to take away an Osprey’s meal in midair. We also noticed the beginning of a kettle of Ospreys high in the sky.
We saw a total of 19 Species:
Overall, we had an enjoyable fun day.
