I decided to visit the Hal Scott Regional Preserve and Park to look for endangered Red-Cockaded Woodpeckers. I didn’t find any, but did come across some other cool birds.
On a recent visit to UCF’s Arboretum just before sunset. I was rewarded with sightings of daddy and baby Eastern Bluebirds, and red-headed male and female Pileated Woodpeckers.
At a time when many birds have left the area for summer, it’s good to visit the year-round residents at the UCF Arboretum.
I drove almost 2 hours to a preserve in Hillsborough County to see my Eastern Bluebird. Little did I realize there was a family of Eastern Bluebirds about 15 minutes from my house at the UCF Arboretum.
Over Memorial Day weekend, I visited the Fish Hawk Creek Preserve South in Hillsborough County, hoping to get some pictures of Eastern Bluebirds that had been seen there. Not only was I able to photograph them, but also several other different birds – include two that were new-to-me.
I spent Memorial Day morning at Fish Hawk Creek Preserve South in Hillsborough County, and I was able to photograph a very patriotic trio of new-to-me birds.
