Overlook Park, 2/21/2013



Yesterday morning I drove up to Overlook Park. It’s about 15 minutes from my house, and I check it out regularly to see what ducks may be out on Lake Jesup. It’s a very small park, so I never expect to find much, but yesterday morning was very enjoyable.

A Great Blue Heron was begging me to take his picture, several Limpkins were out busily gathering snails, some Double-crested Cormorants perched on Lake Jesup for me, and a Bonaparte’s Gull stayed pretty close to shore. I saw nothing new or unusual, but I still had a pretty great 45 minutes before work.
