Circle B Bar Reserve
The trail we took first started out in Shady Oaks, with Spanish moss hanging and a canopy above. The amount of birds flying above was amazing. We saw a couple hundred birds. We saw birds of prey (vultures, hawks, osprey), and water birds (Great Ergret, Great Blue Heron, Anhinga, and White Ibis).
The next trail we took was Alligator Alley. The kids were amazing quiet in search of our first alligator. Derek spotted the first one. We saw a dozen alligators, from 5 feet to 12 feet.
We also saw turtles, a bobcat, raccoons, wild boar and a neat spiny spider.
It was amazing to see the animals in their natural environment. Incredible.
