Yesterday, Skip and I got the oil changed on the car and then ventured to Resaca de la Palma State Park to do some birding.
We took the half hour tram tour and then did some exploring on our own along the Ebony trail and the trees in the parking lot.
The resaca is pretty dried up. It is done intentionally every couple of years so invasive non-native plants can be removed. However, there were some species working their way along.
There were several white ibis in various stages of development.
This solitary sandpiper really was on its own.
It was a perfect day for birding - very little wind, bright sun, and clear blue skies. We'll try to remember to visit earlier in the season next time we're down here.
