Three in one

Three birding trips in one. Two weekends ago I went to see the Pembroke pines eagle nest to see the eaglet, unable to see any activity in the nest, was leaving the area when one of the adults flew into the area, lucked out. Then last weekend Cindy and I joined the Hendry county Audubon  caravan through the STA5  area outside Clewiston. It was quit the cool field trip, saw several life list birds. Then a quick trip through the Plantation preserve park with Cindy and her granddaughter ( a future birder) to see the last two plus several others. Not a bad couple of weeks.

Around the yard

Sometimes you just don't need to go far to see birds and wildlife. Sometimes their in your own backyard, and front . And sometimes there's nothing to be seen anywhere, but the last several days have been good in the yard. Also seen (2) Red bellied woodpeckers, female Cardinal, Palm Warbler, plus several of my doves.
