Anne and I recently traveled over to the Gulf of Mexico to the Crystal River Preserve State Park to the Red Fish Hole Trail Head to prepare for an upcoming children’s bird walk we will be conducting for Citrus County Audubon. Low tide is the best time to see wading birds – egrets, herons, and limpkins – the low water enables these long legged birds to access the area to hunt for fish, shellfish, and crustaceans. There magnificent views of the salt marsh with hummocks of sub-tropical trees. We went back at sundown one day to enjoy the setting sun. I though I’d share some photographs area and will add more posts on the life in this marsh as we continue to visit this very special place.
