CREW Cypress Dome and Caracara Prairie Trails


CREW's Cypress Dome trails were down the road, so I stopped again.  

This preserve backs up to Collier County's Caracara Prairie Preserve.  It was the third time I have walked these trails, but I still have not spotted a caracara.

An osprey circled over and over.

A female anhinga gazed over the scene.

As did a young wood stork.

A pair of sandhill cranes dug for food.

Nice place for some birdspotting.

More great bird shots, Jack.

You had great success walking these trails with wonderful bird photos. We sometimes travel to Nebraska to watch the Sandhill Crane migration where the Platt River is a major stop for them. It is quite a sight and the sound is unreal.

These are wonderful, Jack.

Well, you produced a good crop of birds...even without the caracara
