Here are a few birds we did see. The first are a pair of white ibis perched on the boardwalk handrail.
And one of a pair of golden-crowned night herons perched in a tree.
A very pretty little blue heron walking around looking for a snack.
And a red-shouldered hawk on the top of a tree.
Here is a little green tree frog. He looks big, but he was less than an inch long!
I found some flowers also. The first are swamp lilies, the second are lance-leaf arrowheads.
I think the next ones are some sort of arrowheads and the last yellow flowers are primroses, possibly evening primroses.
Finally, there were two ferns, neither of which I was able to identify. The first one was large and had leathery looking leaves. The second was much smaller and more delicate looking.
This last fern may have been a resurrection fern, but I am not sure. There were very small and delicate.
There were a lot of air plants in the swamp, but this is the only good picture I took of one. Not sure what it is called.
