Recap - Rainbow Springs
A wee bit chilly start to the morning at 38 degrees, but with a lot of hearty people (unlike us Floridian wimps) from the north, it was decidedly balmy. Turned out about 68 degrees There were thirteen participants for the stroll through the most beautiful park in Florida. There were American Robins all over along with Cedar Waxwings at the entrance. We could have stayed just there and been enthralled by the activity of busy birds feeding. We had Downy, Red-bellied, & Pileated Woodpeckers, There were White-eyed Vireos, Blue-gray Gnatcatchers, Tree Swallows,, Ruby-Crowned Kinglets, Black & White Warbler and others. We strolled up through the Butterfly Garden and out to the back fields and added Wood Stork along with the House Wren. A good walk and pleasant morning with a total of 32 species. The eBird link can be found here for the entire list We saw a female Belted Kingfusher , just not this one. I took this in December of a female in Yankeetown.
