Across the marsh, I saw another eagle bringing a big branch back to the nest.

There’s always a lot of great blue herons flying around on Alligator Alley.

There’s been a great blue heron sitting on the nest for several weeks now.  This must be the male taking his turn.  Look at that grumpy face.

Typical Florida shots.

I started going back to Circle B Bar Reserve in early November for the winter. It’s too hot to walk the trails in the summer. There’s been lots of activity going on along the Alligator Alley trail this fall. It’s been so nice to get out for long walks again since the weather has cooled off. The reserve is fairly quiet and hasn’t been too busy so far.
