I visited Tree Hill Nature Center in Jacksonville, Florida about a week ago to primarily to do some birding with Frank. There were loads of birds out, the temperature was mild for a change and we were outside not sweating. Tree HIll is a nature preserve that I will write about in a future post. It is deserving to have its own spotlight and is the home to several goats, chickens, an alligator and a Barred Owl.
If you have only recently started following my blog, I invite you to read “Living in the Moment – Old Yellowstone Trail” post dated 2/22/20. There is a color version of the Pronghorns in that post, plus a few other interesting facts about an iconic “not so traveled” road.
If there is standing water anywhere in Florida, fresh, salt or brackish (mix of fresh & salt), an American alligator could be lurking. Just like any wild animal, you don’t feed them and in most cases they will not bother you.
