Nature Walks –  Early Spring Walk in Wakodahatchee Wetlands, April 1, 2019

It was a bright spring morning in Wakodahatchee Wetlands today when I arrived.  I got there while there was still plenty of parking left — which is sometimes an issue.  First thing I noticed, there seemed to be fewer birds nesting close to the boardwalk.  The wading birds and other species favor the pond apple trees in the wetlands for their rookeries.  The first spring I was here, the place was full of birds and quite noisy (and a little smelly) with babies demanding their breakfasts.  Now, the birds have spread out to trees located further away from where the people are.  There was still quite a bit of activity, with birds flying around and diving for their meals.
