Saturday afternoon we went Inland about 40 miles into a more dry and scrubby area and found Caracara and Florida Scrub Jays. Sunday we spent the morning at the beautiful Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary. One could spend an entire day along the boardwalk and still not see everything. Here we found Wood Storks roosting in the tree tops. Warblers flitted about above our heads while a Little Blue hunted for his breakfast not over 6 feet away. After lunch we headed out along the Tamiami Trail. Along the way I found my next 3 lifers, the Short-tailed Hawk, 3 Limpkin, and 10 to 12 Snail Kites. Monday we moved down Into the Everglades to see what we could find in this wonderful park. My 5th lifer was a flock of White Crown Pigeons that flew over the road. Bald eagles were nesting on an offshore island, Brown Pelicans were everywhere and many other birds were seen.
