It's too HOT! lol But we have managed to work a few hikes in lately. We walked at Halpata Tastanaki Preserve on Mother's Day. (#30) It was in the 70s when we started but when we finished an hour and a half later, the clouds had parted and the sun had warmed us into the 80s! TOO HOT!!!
But of course it's always wonderful to get out in nature and enjoy the sights and see the beauty of the Preserve.
We got a good view of this Rufous Sided Towhee. He was way up in a tree but at least he stayed put long enough to get a few photos.
These are common in the mountains of NC so it was nice to find them here in central Florida too. They have a distinctive song and we spot them on the ground under the trees quite often at the Preserve.
You can see that the trail is getting quite grown up already.
And aren't the wildflowers along the trail pretty.
Let's look back up one more time to see this amazing bird.
Enjoy the holiday weekend!
