Birding walk

02/17/2019

I can’t believe its already February, never mind the middle of it. Only 8 more weeks and we are embarking on our 2019 Adventure.

The morning starting mugging and wet, 72 degrees at 5:30 AM with 95 % humidity. We barely made it in  time for the 8:30 guided bird walk which had a total of 22 birders. First the group was going to be split up in 2 parts, one doing the regular section  and then going into the tropical part but everyone wanted to go into the tropical part first.

Weather did not play nice and we ended up with some showers/mist for a good part of the walk.  At the end we had a total of 80 species and I finally got to see my Crested Caracaras…I guess thats what they call a LIFER bird sighting.

Lunch we had at the BLUE ONION,  about 2.2 miles north of the park just before the BurgerKing We have been to their second location but this one also has their craftbeer on tap. I had the Seamon Porter and Andrea had the Hefeweizen ( american brewers need to stop calling Wheat Ale  “Hefeweizen” unless its fermented with the correct Hefeweizen yeast
