Sunday morning bike ride at Myakka Park
Took the road bike to Myakka River State Park. Probably not the best choice because of the roughness of the park road.
Along the ride there were – deer, vultures, turkeys, alligators, osprey, various hawks I couldn’t identify, turtles, and owls (see below).
Stopped at the picnic area at the far end of the park:
I noticed some people looking up into a tree that was near the river so I investigated. There was a Bard Owl and some owl chicks.
I also took a walk along the path that follows the river for a short way.
Beautiful way to spend 4 hours.
