2020 - March

March 4 - Myakka River State Park

This morning, we spent about two hours at the Park.  We made stops by the bridge, the weir area and the boardwalk.  By far, the weir area had the most birds, as well as the most people.  The water level was about a foot below normal, so there were a lot of birds wading or swimming in the water around the weir, including Black-necked Stilts, Yellowlegs, Cormorants, many Limpkins, Herons, Egrets, and a lone adult Snow Goose, which has been in the area since late November.  Following are some images taken during our visit.
