We enjoyed our time at Little Manatee River, which we spent mostly hiking. On one of our hikes we encountered a golden colored snake, which we had never seen before. After looking it up on the web we decided it might be a Golden Rat Snake. We admired its beauty as it slithered off into the brush. No photo, it was too fast!

I have to say, not much in the way of birding at Little Manatee River. Hopefully, it had more to do with the time of year than the habitat; however, I have noticed that when an area has a lot of Palmettos the birds are scarce, just not enough for them to eat.

It was time for us to leave Little Manatee River, so this morning we packed up and headed to our next adventure.

Until next time…

    1. You guys are the “real” hikers; we are just meanders! 😉 I know what you mean, if we didn’t get to hike we would miss it for sure. Enjoy your hikes this week. I look forward to seeing where you go.

    1. Hi Gay! We pulled into Alafia State Park yesterday and noticed right away the difference in reference to the birds. LOTS of warblers, kingfishers, cardinals and others here!! Yeah! Thanks Gay!! 😉
