One of the greatest wonders of Wakodahatchee may be finding it. Tara and I heard of Wakodahatchee from out-of-town birders at Loxahatchee. (I think they were even from New Jersey!) They promised us it would be better than Green Cay. Not having been to Green Cay (yet) we took their word for it.
But words are funny things. We didn’t write it down; we had only heard the word. So figuring out where wado-wado-what? was located was quite a challenge. Not too mention all the hatchees everywhere! The birders had described it to us as “almost across the street”. And that’s how we found it. A place beginning with “W” in the vicinity of Green Cay. Thanks, Google Maps!
Wakodahatchee is a boardwalk loop that crosses several small shallow waterways. The design of the walkway brings you very close to the wildlife. It’s a single loop that allows birders, walkers, and families a chance to get outside and experience nature to whatever degree you desire.
I won’t continue the narrative between each photo, but just present the rest of the photos as their own narrative. I took 799 photos here as I continued to explore the new camera equipment. The birds were that close and plentiful!
[Can you tell the semester started? I just realized I haven’t blogged in over a month. That’s embarrassing. I think I need someone to peck at me when I slack off…]
