We found another wildlife location called Sunnyhill Restoration Area. We have visited it twice. The first time we walked along a stretch of the Ocklawaha River and even saw a few motorboats going through. It wasn’t very wide so we were surprised to see the boats coming through. It was open so was quite warm walking.
The second time we visited this area, we took another trail and saw alligators, birds, turtles and deer. The alligators blend in so well it was difficult to spot them at first. Compare the next two pictures and you can see what I mean. Looking at the second picture you can see some of the tree stumps to the right of the alligator and then view the first picture to see where it is.
This gator was a lot bigger than some of the others and was a little scary as he kept staring at us as we walked by.
We came across these cranes on the side of the road. The camera was in the back of the car so I had to jump out, grab the camera and get these pictures. The cranes were quite willing to let me take their picture.
There is a small pond down the street from our house and a pod of pelicans has been hanging around. (Had to do a Google search to find out what a group of pelicans is called.)
This little guy landed on the wall in our backyard. Thought he was really cute.
