Wakodahatchee & Green Cay Update

Had to go out this morning to pick some stuff up and I decided that since I was going to be in the area, I’d stop by Wakodahatchee and Green Cay and see how things were going, especially since I’ve been seeing more and more birds around the house.

Juvenile Common Moorhen

To make a long story short, there wasn’t a lot of activity at either site. Bird populations were dominated by juvenile Common Moorhens and Boat-tailed Grackles. Other than that there were some cattle egrets at Wakodahatchee on the island in the first pond if you turn left on the boardwalk. There were also some numbers of Mottled Ducks and Black-bellied Whistling Ducks; not a lot mind you, but a few more than I remember seeing this time last year.

One disappointing change of note, at Wakodahatchee they have put up a chain link fence–probably due to alligator related concerns–along the south side of the northern most walkway (the concrete one on the berm). Unfortunately, they’ve placed it far enough away from the existing fence that it pretty much ruins shots into the pond there (there are a couple of clearings) for anything that’s closer than about 10-20 feet out.
