Barred Owlets!

There were two owlets that were fuzzy and fun to watch. Didn't see much else. Could have been the time of day.

An easy hike with some shade. Saw a Barred Owl sitting at eye level right off the trail. Beautiful, rich vegetation.

We loved this stop. The trail was a boardwalk through a forest that was very different than what we would expect in this area. After a walk across a prairie, you end up on the hammock (woods) and it is so different than any other place in the park. Due to the weather, we got through here in 20 minutes,... More

Interesting stop on the drive to Flamingo. Really and unusually Hammock not usually seen in this area of the park. Quite and cool under the shade of the canopy. Not much is the way of wildlife but a Tropical Forrest in the midst of the River of Grass.

Great chance to walk through an amazing jungle that you couldn't get into any other way. The shallow water outside the hammock made for some great pics of the clouds. I did get tagged by 4 mosquitoes in the 30 min we were there, how dare i walk into their house right ;)

This is a very cool trail. There are resident owls in it and we heard a couple and saw one small one.

How many places can you go to see native mahogany forest, ferns growing on logs, and a safe, albeit steamy walk through a jungle environment?

Mornings or evenings are better to catch birds, but my itinerary put me more at middle to late afternoon by the time I arrived to check out this anticipated ecosystem. Since the Everglades is pretty darn flat, the subtle elevation change means a distinct yet interrelated ecosystem! I was looking forward to seeing the largest living mahogany tree in the... More

This is a beautiful look at an amazing place! If a biologist were to recreate a diorama in a museum of Jurassic Park ( the movie) or the wild Amazon, they would copy this place. Mosquitos can get bad but worth it!
