Nature Walks, December 19, 2017 – Whacked Out on Birds

The above title could be:  “whacked out on birds, alligators, and iguanas”, but I prefer short, catchy titles.

I was delighted to take my sister to one of my favorite local wetlands on Tuesday afternoon.  The place was a little more quiet, as the crowds tend to come during the day, but there was plenty of activity and sightings of the local fauna crowd.

We saw birds of various shapes and sizes, young gators, huge iguanas and even a very large brown water snake that was wrapped tightly around a tiny tree.  I’ll let the photos do the talking for me:
