I took one of my grandsons to Myakka River State Park to see some wildlife, and we watched as a Great Egret caught an eel.
It was a beautiful sunny morning, and I re-visited Myakka River State Park to check on the progress of the nesting Spoonbills.
It was a beautiful sunny morning, and a flock of American White Pelicans was floating just off the shoreline.
On the northwest shore of Lake Hancock, Circle B Bar Reserve is a former cattle ranch that today boasts a wide variety of plants and animals. You can see several distinct ecosystems in this reserve of 1,267 acres.
It was overcast and cool (for Florida). On my last trip to the Park, I found an area West of the boat launch that flows into the river. It had a variety of birds, and I was hoping to see more Spoonbills.
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.
