Another trip to the History Park

Still a great place in Punta Gorda to spend some time.  The Hibiscus are coming in to bloom and there is an abundance of birds in the park.  The craft shop in the Trabue Land Office has a list of species seen.  Of course, the feeder draws a few of the small birds.

   

But, the highlight was discovering that a pair of Great Horned Owls – Bubo virginianus had taken over the abandoned eagle nest and were preparing to raise a family there. This was the only shot I could get with both in the frame

But, I did get a couple of individual shots over two days.

   

So, it looks like the park will be pretty interesting for the next few months. Since they prey on other birds we may see some reduction in other species.

About birds n' bugs

Retired, living in SW Florida and spending my time at nature photography in my local area. I volunteer with a couple of local organizations to help my adopted home town. Travelling is now by airplane and car instead of a sailboat but happy anyway.
