Today we saw a great kiskadee, an olive sparrow, a couple of black-crested titmouses (titmice?), double crested cormorants, a least grebe, a ladder-backed woodpecker, and many cardinals. Most of the aforementioned species are only seen in the US in this area.
At the feeding station we saw white-tipped doves, a long-billed thrasher, and a green jay.
In addition to many sabal palms, there is other lush vegetation. Across one of the resacas (oxbow lakes) we saw this very large castor bean plant.
One of my favourite plants is Turk's cap (Malvaviscus drummondii).
On the way to the car, I looked up to the railing of the water tower and saw a peregrine falcon (under the letter "M")
Every time I forget my camera, we see excellent things. Even so, I really would rather have had good photos. Next time, for sure...
