~Birding in Myakka River State Park

Myakka River State Park, Sarasota, Florida

We have spent the last few days hanging around the park. Taking walks, birding and enjoying other hobbies. It has been cool, temperatures in the 60’s. We are loving the lower temps!

Remember my header photo of the Black-bellied Whistling Ducks? The reason they were able to rest with their eyes closed is, because they always have one watching for signs of danger.

A late evening walk along the river gave me these two gifts above.

Great Blue Heron

Look closely at the Great Blue Heron photo above. The two additional Anhinga photos are of it trying to dry its feathers after hunting.

A few additional Anhinga photos from walks around the park.

Little Blue Herons, Tri-colored Herons, Great Egrets, all seen in Myakka River State Park.

Along with Black-crowned and Green Herons

Glossy and White Ibis, another late evening shot.

Myakka River State Park is a wonderful place to visit if you enjoy birding, biking, hiking, kayaking, or just the peacefulness of being out in nature.

Coming up, a late evening photo shoot with a Snowy Egret.
