One more Cedar Key bird today. This is a Common Egret. This one has also adapted to hanging out at the marina in hopes of leftover bait, etc. Posted by Hello

Our FEC trains go along Indian River. I see thousands of birds everyday. I am not really sure what I saw last week but it looked like a small panther redish brown and real fast.For about 12 miles we travel about 50 yard from the west shore.What we dont see are buildings, people ,roads.We do see bald eagles,hundreds of egrets,osprey and a large coyote once.Sunrises across the river towards Cape Canaveralare awsome.

That must be a beautiful stretch of train tracks. Even with all the development, Indian River lagoon is still a fish and wildlife producer. We used to vacation there at the Hutchinson Island Inn. What a great place. We would eat supper at Conchy Joes on the water. You could feed the fish while you dined...kind of like the Santa Maria back in old St. Augustine.

"Leftover bait"?

They steal my bait right out of the 5-gallon bucket!
