|Baby alligators sitting on their mother's back. Probably the most popular location along the boardwalk!|
|A little woodpecker on a cypress tree. We have these in our own backyard, but I liked him.|
On the placards along the boardwalk, we read tales of brave rangers who fought poachers in the swamps, brave political acts that shut down hunting for egret plumes, and finally, deals with logging companies that saved this last bit of forest. We didn't expect to see any new birds today, and didn't see them, but we very much enjoyed our 3 hour walk through the pristine cypress swamps.
