Wildlife Trails

Out with Barbara this am to the Panther Preserve took a 1.3 mile loop trail, not much to see except the hawk. Then out to Big Cypress Wildlife Preserve for another trail.Gators, warblers, woodpeckers, and robins. Still no four legged animals. Last stop Snake Bright Rd. more hawks and gators, then the Caracara's.
Coming or leaving occupant?

Red Shouldered Hawk

sunlight coming into the trail. Would have been neat to see a panther or bobcat standing there.
