Just another WordPress.com weblog about Nature and Wildlife

DSC_1848 The La Chua Trail birds are fabulous!  I so enjoyed seeing Great Egrets, Great Blue and Tri-colored Herons, Common Cormorants, Yellow-rumped Warblers, Anhingas; White Ibises, Snowy Egrets, Common Gallinules, and of course, the other animals – alligators and turtles.

I did not see any of the Wild Horses or Bison which once in awhile can be seen from this trail.  I photographed these birds, gator, and trail scenes on March 12, 2015 at Paynes Prairie Preserve State Park, near Gainesville, Fl.  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger photo.  Enjoy!

  1. What a cute photo of the warbler!

  2. Hello, Just got home from a nice trip to Arkansas to celebrate George’s birthday. I will blog about it tomorrow.

    Now–it’s time to start working in the yard, cleaning up all of the ‘junk’ from the ice storm. What a mess!!!

    Hope you are doing well. Love you pictures of the birds from Paynes Prairie.


    • Hi Betsy, Glad things are calming down weather-wise in the ‘Glade. I hope your wonderful yards get back to prime soon. I am glad you had a nice trip to Arkansas. I know you enjoy that state. Have a super coming week!

  3. oh, that gator is awesome!

    • Hi Theresa, I liked seeing that gator but he or she was pretty close to the trail. It surprises one if you are not really prepared or know that the gators are there. So, if a person does walk this particular trail, know that you will see very large alligators up close. Have a great day today!
