There is nothing like a morning stroll around the Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary.
|Immature Red-shouldered Hawk|
While we watched, a Swallow-tailed Kite swooped in and tried to knock the hawk off. It was pretty cool! My sister Beth had never seen a Swallow-tailed Kite before so this was another new life bird.
We didn't see many birds this trip, but we sure saw (and felt) the bugs! We wished we had remembered the bug spray because I could hardly take pictures they were biting so bad. When we got to the car - still swatting them off, Bill tells me "Oh look - the bug spray was in my back pocket the whole time." I could have killed him!
