Nature Walk, 16 November 2017 – Before the Rains

There was a thick bank of clouds building on the eastern horizon when I left home this morning, heading to Wakodahatchee Wetlands, which had been closed for about 11 days.  The place looked cleaned up when I started on the boardwalk.  With all the birds around, it’s sometimes hard to keep the walkways cleaned, but today they looked freshly scrubbed.

Nesting season is already beginning.  The Great Blue Herons are preparing their nests.  And the Double-Crested Cormorants have nests full of swiftly growing, demanding youngsters.

Also seen today was a lovely woodpecker (no photo), a Belted Kingfisher, two gators, numerous turtles, herons, egrets, anhingas, Speckled Ducks, and some colorful little finches who were gorging at a birdfeeder.  I spent some time at both Wakodahatchee and Green Cay.

I love to listen to the whispering of spirit.
