FCCP Sunday Morning Photowalk at Chestnut Park

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 are going to explore Chestnut Park in Palm Harbor. Tides will be fairly low, but rising.

There are also 5 to 6 Great Blue Heron nests we'll be able to photograph, birds should be on their nests. Shorebirds and waders are common under these conditions. I've often seen Bald Eagles, Barred Owls, Wood Storks and Red-shouldered hawks in the area as well. Deer may also bee seen, so keep your eyes open

 

    

We'll meet at the very back parking lot by the volley ball court. This is near Shelters 9 & 10. You can read more about Chestnut Park at the County site.

    It was good to meet all the first-timers! Hopefully next time we'll have blue skies and a few of our resident "bird-whisperers" (I am looking at you Tim, Jane, and Rita!) to help coax some of the wildlife to come out and pose for us.

    PS. Today we welcomed new member Rita into the group. She comes from Alaska, and has an incredible portfolio of 419 wildlife pictures online including bald eagles, bears, spoonbills, etc. If anyone in the group is bored, treat yourself to her work. You will enjoy it.

    Great day in the park. Matt and Brian found the nests, and later on, Brian found 2 deer who were more than happy to pose for us. We missed you and Teresa.

      Gail, I was there this morning. How did I miss meeting you.

      Diane, I was in the front talking with Matt and Brian about directions. I thought I saw you coming from the parking lot, but when I looked again a bit later, you were gone.

    I've signed up for the John Chestnut Photo Walk for Sunday Feb 22 - What TIME??? The initial sign up showed 1:30pm to start. The next time I received a notice it said the time was 8:30am.

      The correct time is 8:30 AM. I'm not sure where the other time came from. Maybe a Meetup time warp :-)
