We’ve noticed a lot of wildlife in the campground and the area next to the campground.
On the trails, we saw a flock of wild turkeys running past us. As they dashed past us, I was lucky to get the phone out and get pictures of the last two turkeys running past us. We saw them disappear into the palmetto palms.
One day, on the way back to the campground from grocery shopping, we saw sandhill cranes.
We saw a three foot alligator by the boat dock at the campground.
While taking the canoe out, we saw this bird. We think it is a juvenile osprey.
Anoles abound. I was able to get this picture along the pier.
There is a heron that often is at the boat dock. We’ve seen it several times as we walk around the campground.
We often see a red shouldered hawk flying above the trees in the campground. I have recorded its calls and Merlin ID determined what bird it was. I could tell it was a hawk, just not what type.
It has been very interesting to see all the different wild animals.
