Paddling the Silver River April 2016

Two Male Wood Ducks along with two sunning Turtles
met us at the first corner on the Silver River this morning. The place was full
of wildlife. It was Bruno’s, his sister’s and Mom’s second time with us so we
were stoked to be able to show them the “pearls” of the Silver River. We
witnessed an adult Little Blue Heron catch a crawfish. Skirting the edge we
found Apple Snail eggs on the Cattails 1 and 2 feet off the water. The purple
Pickerel Weed, red Cardinal Flower and white Water Hemlock are the dominant blooms
right now. We found a Limpkin sitting on the nest and lots of young White Ibis
were out feeding together. The Great Blue and Black Crowned Night Herons also
made an appearance. About the time we gave up looking for the Monkeys luck was
on our side and 100 yards from the finish there they were and there must have
been 30 of them! It was great to have Bruno and his family with us again and a beautiful day to share with friends.
