Beyond the BackyardCircle B Bar Reserve

Birds Grow up So Quickly!

We had our first photo walk at the Circle B Bar Reserve this morning.  It was a small group, but we had a nice walk.  We saw our first-of-fall Common Yellowthroats, and I’m pretty sure I heard several other warblers, but the mosquitoes were thick and we didn’t linger to watch them.  We found the baby Limpkins out on the Wading Bird Way trail, and wow, they have gotten bigger!  They spent most of their time buried in the bushes, but we got a quick glimpse of two babies as they ran across the trail.
