Kayak event on the Silver River on Friday
Date and Effort: Friday Oct 13, 2017

Here are the results from our birding by kayak event on the Silver River on Friday. Our bird count was recorded by Barbara Schwartz. We had five Audubon and three Florida trail association participants for a total of eight. We had a great group and a good time.

Wood Ducks (pairs): 2
Anhinga (mixed genders; it was often impossible to tell. Up in trees,
          backs to us, underwater, etc): 25 Cormorant (same as above): 20
Ibis: 26
Immature Little Blue Heron: 1
Adult Little Blue Heron: 6
Gallinule: 6
Pied-billed Grebe: 1
Belted kingfisher: 2
Turkey Vultures: 3
Red Shouldered Hawks: 2
Pileated Woodpecker: 2
Hairy Woodpecker (probably female but up in a tall tree): 1
Green Herons: 6
Great Egret: 2 overhead
Green-winged Teal Female: 1
She was lovely; sitting alone on partially submerged tree limb.
          A few of us paddled up for a better
          view and she remained calm and didn’t move.
          An early arrival for winter?

Comments: Josie and Jim S scouting trail. Construction work is underway on parts of trails for water distribution and opening up sides of trail for better viewing. Saw one deer and though we couldn't see it we had a bear loudly growl from less than 50 ft off trail. Didn't have to fight the mosquitoes from that point on as our walking pace rapidly increased. Saw some excellent birds.
