Of course, Everglades NP is much more than crocs … the weekends were filled with many different photo opps, featuring a wide variety of many different species of migrating birds. I know that if I ever left south Florida, the Everglades would be sorely missed. Never the same place on any given time – always evolving and changing. Of course, no trip to the Everglades is ever complete without a side trip to Roberts for a strawberry-key lime milkshake – at least not if I make the trip down there with Tom!
Burrowing owls were also a big focus for us this year, visiting them at Brian Piccolo Park in Cooper City quite often. They’re just so gosh darned cute! In 2012, I really felt that I got to know the various families of owls, as we watched their young grow up, literally through our lenses. I have to admit, it was a bit sad when they were all grown up and finally “flew the coop” – or should I say “flew the burrow”.
Can’t wait until the burrowing owl families are back in full swing!
Stay tuned for 2012 Review: Part 3 & Part 4
