Florida June Flashbacks: 2011- 2015

Florida June Flashbacks: 2011- 2015



With plenty of indoor time available due to Tropical Storm Colin and a persistent stormy weather pattern this past week in Southwest Florida, I made flashbacks of June visits to five different wildlife venues going back to 2011.

 

 

 

 

Florida June Flashbacks: 2011- 2015

The Ruddy Turnstone above (image 1) was photographed at Little Estero Lagoon in June 2015.

Two species have been selected from each venue offering newly presented images. It should be readily expected to see all the species in this post at their respective venue in June with the exception of the Horned Lark at Fort De Soto Park and Black-necked Stilt at Harns Marsh Preserve.

Additional information about all the venues except Harns Marsh Preserve (no restroom facilities) can be found at the Great Florida Birding and Wildlife Trail website. Otherwise, please search for abundant information in this blog.

If you have the time while seeking Florida wildlife in June, I strongly encourage newfound experiences be created at all of these noted venues. Traveling from Fort Myers, a visit to Fort De Soto Park should have at least a half day dedicated to it (be sure to stop at Celery Fields on the way back), while Dry Tortugas National Park should require a minimum of two days travel for the day trip to Fort Jefferson via the Yankee Freedom. Bunche Beach Preserve, my favorite wildlife venue, is best visited at a low tide. A dawn arrival at Harns Marsh Preserve is recommended.
