Kayaking Florida's Rivers January 26, 2014






Leslie has been on several rivers with us and today the calm winds made for some nice reflections off the water. We started our adventure upstream toward the sulfur spring that was visible... another advantage of the calm winds and you can see all the way into the cave where the water just wells up from underground. The Limpkins were out and about, we got to see them several times along the way. The Great Blue Herons were chasing each other around and the Green Herons were quite abundant as well. The Pileated, Red-bellied and Downy Woodpeckers were sharing a tree full of snacks and the Anhingas are starting to get their breeding plumage going. The Male and Female are quite a sight. The Little Blue Herons, Moorhens, Wood Ducks, Sandhill Cranes, White Ibis, Great Egrets, Cormorants, Red-shouldered Hawks and the Osprey were all enjoying the day too. The wild architecture of the trees with the Cypress Knees and Winter colors in play, casts lots of colors to the river and it was a great day to be in a kayak ;-)!
