turkey creek sanctuary | palm bay, florida

Yesterday we ventured out to Turkey Creek Sanctuary to try and spot some wildlife. This nature preserve has boardwalk paths, trails for bikes and jogging, and a canoe dock on the creek. A few of our friends go kayaking often and spot turtles, birds, alligators and other local animals. It’s a very beautiful place.

We were lucky enough to find five hawks sitting in a tree together, but because we didn’t bring our big zoom lens, we didn’t get any photos. Here are some of the ones I did get.

The most interesting part of our short trip to the sanctuary was finding Mr. Manatee. He kept coming to the surface to munch on the leaves and made the strangest noises. He was a cutie.

    Beautiful pictures! It seems so random that there is a manatee just hangin’ out but he is so adorable! :) I also dig your bridge pictures. :)

    The bridge is so lovely, as is the manatee – such a great and unusual nature shot, as I am sure you do not see one of those everyday!
