Myakka River State Park is one of Florida's largest, oldest, and most diverse natural areas. It flows through 58 square miles of wetlands, prairies, and pinelands.
Fall is a beautiful time of the year. The Sandhill Cranes gather for their annual migration to warmer weather.
It's been scorching here the last few days, and we got a nice shower last night. While eating breakfast, I watched this Northern Cardinal enjoy the wet tree leaves.
I've been working on setting up some bird feeders in a small tree just outside my office. I took the screen out of the window, giving me a perfect view to capture birds.
I spotted this Sandhill Crane over a month ago sitting on a nest in a small wetland area near our house. It's my first time seeing Cranes on a nest.
Aransas National Wildlife Refuge is best known as the wintering home of the last wild flock of endangered whooping cranes. The Refuge has stunning scenery and a diversity of wildlife.
