Florida Trails Hike # 75 and #76!

We’ll finish out the year with two hikes in one day!

I don’t really do that in ‘real life’ but I want to keep this series moving!

The highlight of Hike #75 was seeing an Eagle!

It’s an immature Eagle so it’s not quite as easy to identify! But thrilling no less!

Hike #76 was beautiful!

The sky had some pretty wispy clouds,

and there were lots of birds to photograph.

Cardinal, Tufted Titmouse, Bluebird, Red-Bellied Woodpecker.

So we’ll finish the year with 2 hikes!

But don’t worry, we’ll start again ‘next year’ 2019!

Can you believe it?

I’m joining Angie for Mosaic Monday HERE.

I've only ever seen a bald eagle in the wild on one occasion, but I will never forget it! Such a magnificent bird! Happy New Year to you! Thanks for popping by my blog the other day.

I don't think I have ever seen a Tufted Titmouse in person. Very cool!
Keep those hikes coming. I love traveling vicariously.

It's such a joy to see the birds while taking a walk. You saw many of them on your hike. What a sight that cardinal must be. It's the one bird I still long to see. The Woodpecker is a handsome fellow. Happy New Year, Diane! I hope you find more interesting things on your daily hikes in 2019. : )
