WILDLIFE BUSY ALONG THE RIVER

The wildlife along the Silver River is plentiful this time of year.  On our most recent trip two bear cubs were spotted along the banks.  Several different troops of monkeys were sighted, as well as the river otters.

There were large flocks of White Ibis’s, and several pairs of Black Crowned Night Herons.  Other birds that you will see an abundance of are the Great Blue Heron, Lesser Blue  Heron, and the Tri-Colored Heron.  Snowy and American Egrets, Red Shouldered Hawks, Ospreys, pileated Woodpeckers, and King Fishers will also add to your birding experience along the Silver River.

As we head into winter, if you want to be sure to see plenty of alligators it is best to go on a warmer day with sunshine. The fall and winter months are perfect for those days when you can boat the River in the mid-day.

Until next time, see you on the Rivers!
