Birds in Venetian Gardens Park

We have been walking a good bit recently and even reached four miles per day a couple times. Usually, we walk around the neighborhood. But, we walk in Venetian Gardens at least once a week. We park at the lakefront and eat our sandwich first.

Then it is time to walk. I had not noticed the hole in this Great Blue Heron’s feathers until I got the pictures on the computer.

This is an ordinary sign in Florida parks and anywhere near water.

I was able to get really close to this Limpkin.


There were Great Blue Herons everywhere. This one whizzed by waist-high as we walked.

I don’t believe I’ve posted a portrait of an Ibis before.


This Great Blue was standing next to the bridge from which we were watching the alligator. It was keeping a close eye on the alligator too.

The alligator decided to swim on up the canal. It was not moving its limbs at all. Only the tail moved with a slow and gentle sideways wave.

    Love your post. Looks serene.

    Will we see you in Marathon again?

      Hi Sharon! We are planning to go to Marathon for about a week, the first week of May. Will you still be there?

    Magnificent photos. It’s always a great experience to have large birds fly close when you can feel the air movement.
