The owls have a new chick(s)? and we can see mom on the nest and dad nearby. There can be lots of activity as dad flies in with meals (MRE's) of squirrel, snake, mouse or almost any Kapok resident.
Other birds and mammals (otters) are in the area and we'll explore the park and surroundings for several hours before heading to lunch.
Every other Sunday morning we will meet at a local park to explore our "wild" side. Wear comfortable walking shoes. The trips will not be strenuous but may involve walking distances of one to two miles. Today we're going Kapok Park, a relatively new Clearwater Park. We've been here before and have seen Limpkins, Red-shouldered Hawks, Great Horned Owls, Great Egrets, Snowy Egrets, Red-winged Blackbirds, Pileated Woodpeckers, Red-bellied Woodpeckers, and many more birds. Otters are seen frequently as well. We meet in the parking lot at 8:30 AM.
An optional lunch will take place afterwards at the Applebees on McMullin-Booth Rd.
