We read that Wekiva Springs is a great place to bird-watch and hike.
It was the first time we’d ever seen a tufted titmouse.
I thought this was a robin at first, but then upon closer inspection discovered it was an Eastern Towhee. We didn’t get to hear it do its characteristic “Drink your tea!” call, though.
This Gray Catbird was right up on the path, and I was photographing him, when somebody walked right in between us and scared him off. How rude!
It quickly became apparent that the birds just weren’t out today. We heard chickadees but couldn’t find them. In other places we didn’t hear birds at all. But the butterflies started to come out.
