Just another WordPress.com weblog about Nature and Wildlife

River Wildlife, Part 1

River Otter

A River Otter; two Wild Turkeys; a Bald Eagle; about twenty Limpkins; Sandhill Cranes; Little Blue Herons; Great Blue Herons; Anhingas; Turkey and Black Vultures; Double-crested Cormorants;  a Black-crowned Night Heron; a Tri-Colored Heron; Snowy Egrets; Great Egrets; a Belted Kingfisher; Alligators; Turtles; Purple Gallinules; and Common Moorhens were all spotted during a two hour scenic boat cruise from the very beautiful Blue Springs State Park on the St. John’s River here in Florida yesterday morning.

The pontoon boat Captain drives slowly through backwater channels chock-full of wildlife!  I enthusiastically recommend this cruise!  Advance reservations are likely needed and tickets today cost $20.00 per adult plus a $6.00 per car state park day use admission fee.

Part 2 will be posted here on Monday.  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the slightly larger version of the picture.  Enjoy!
