I spotted an Osprey atop a huge high tension electric tower along Highway 441 near the Paynes Prairie Preserve overlook when I was there on May 3, 2015. I did not see many birds or animals but did notice a few Red-winged Blackbirds, Boat-tailed Grackles (I believe the center picture below shows a Boat-tailed Grackle in flight) and heard a few Alligators.
It was pretty breezy out so I just enjoyed the blooming purple flowers of the Pickerel Weed that seemed to be carpeting the fresh water marsh. Please click on the thumbnail image to see a slightly larger version of the picture. Enjoy!
