I spotted the Crested Caracara in a tall pine a few trees away. It's always a pleasure to observe this beautiful bird! All I needed was some sun.
I decided to continue on and make a loop back to the parking lot as there is a small pond on the other side of the trees. There were a few Mallards and Blue-winged Teals in the pond as well as a few Limpkins hanging around.
The Caracara flew by us as we continued on; I tried to follow his path, but lost sight of him. I was really excited to see him perched on a broken light post as we entered the parking lot.
As I drove along my street, I noticed a Red-shouldered Hawk.
And later in the day, as the sun finally made an appearance, an Osprey stopped by for a visit!
