Rock Springs Run's Big Birding Surprise March 13, 2014

Wow, Rock Springs Run is known for it's scenic beauty but today the birds gave us a big surprise. The Swallow-tailed Kites are now here, fresh from South America. We saw 12 Great Egrets all together looking to pair up, the White Ibis are decorated with their bright red bills and legs, Great Blue Herons, Little Blue Herons, Limpkins and Osprey were all present and accounted for. We had a big male Wild Turkey fly out of a tree right in front of us and as we looked up there was a Wood Stork circling overhead. We caught a glimpse of 2 North American River Otters, a few small Alligators and tons of Turtles were out sunning as well. The sky was that Spring time blue color, the river nice and clear and the trees are bursting with shades of green. It was a great day to be on the river!
