Saturday we took a hour ride north of our campground in Hollywood to check out Audubon's Beidler Forest
Check out the web site for info on flora and fauna to be seen here.
Here is the blog for Beidler Forest
To get to the boardwalk you enter through the visitor center.
We chatted a bit with facebook friend and Audubon land manager Mark Musselman and then headed out to explore the forest..
I couldn’t help myself..I just had to be an owl
thru the forest and swamp..
An odd formation…gall?
Typical vegetation throughout the walk.
Hermit Thrush checking for bugs on the boardwalk.
Love in the woods!
I am not good with ID so any help or corrections are appreciated..
Is this a Snapping turtle?
I think this is a Question Mark?
Look closely this was very small and delicate..
looking and listening..
I didn’t see anything inside..
We are almost at the end of our walk
Almost back to the welcome center
walked on the boardwalk in front of us for a few minutes..
We waited for it to leave before continuing on
We stopped at the picnic area for some lunch..
While Ruby-crowned Kinglets
were doing the same..
It was a lovely visit…
