Caracara Prairie Preserve

 I went with some friends to one of Collier County's conservation areas in Immokalee.

Much of the preserve is open fields and meadows with scattered palms and palmettos.

Several herds of cows graze in the fields, along with their buddies, cattle egrets.

We saw three deer in several spots as we walked through the preserve.

There had been a recent controlled burn to clear undergrowth and stimulate new growth.

Two friends walked ahead while I puttered behind.

Regrettably, we did not see any of the rare caracara birds, that often live near cattle.

It is still nice to be out walking in green surroundings. Everything is white here.

Jack, you may not have seen all the birds you wanted, but you did get wonderful photos of this area. Thank you for taking us along on this walk.

And those deer were quite aware of you.
