My Sightings

Date Location Note
Largo Central Park NPThey were all acting rowdy and strange
-One of the Gallinules on my pond has had another round of babies. The last brood of three juveniles are still around and I think they are staying to help raise the new babies. A birdwatcher at a nearby park had told me that the older offspring will help raise the younger ones.
-Some youngsters on the dock across the pond.
Walsingham Park@ Walsingham Park, lots of babies, and they are all fearless. They followed me around for a little bit. Very cute.
