Pelicans, Skimmers, and the Jungle

A family visit to McKee Gardens for research on Exploring Florida’s Botanical Wonders, paired with Pelican Island, brought back memories of our 1960s trips.

White Pelicans

Today, Paynes Prairie and the air around it was filled with white birds. Pelicans! Hundreds of them! Wood storks, herons, and egrets too. Quite the gathering.

Butterfly World

Working on research for Exploring Florida’s Botanical Wonders while in Broward County, I had the opportunity to visit Butterfly World for the first time.
