We feel incredibly fortunate to have spotted two Crested Caracara driving through the orange groves and cattle farms on our way home from the tractor show last night!! Their numbers have greatly declined since the 1960s due to habitat loss, but, thanks to state and federal Fish and Wildlife departments, their numbers are improving. They are striking looking raptors, we're so glad we got to see them!!! This is a royalty free stock photo, I couldn't get a picture myself.
We took a ride down to Titusville this morning so we could check out Flounder Creek Outfitters! The owner, Nick (great name!) wasn't in, but I got to visit with his mom for a bit. A great shop that carries in-house tied flies, more tying materials than you could shake a hook at and a wealth of local knowledge! Check them out if you're in the area!!
