So, I broke down and went on another field trip with Pearl. The alligator farm.
But! I have to admit I enjoyed the native birds more than alligators. It has become a natural bird refuge as there aren't the normal predators for these fine feathered friends with alligators to protect them--like a whole bunch of big brothers.
In honor of Mother's day coming up
Roseate Spoonbill--I'd name the rest of them, but I never took zoology with Mr. Webb. Shame, I know.
Oh, there were alligators, too.
