Hunting in Florida Photos - 2014

July 28, 2014:  Red-shouldered Hawk, Apalachicola National Forest

June 15, 2014:  Wood Stork (Mycteria Americana)

I recently spotted this wood stork in the Apalachicola National Forest.  As of August 28, 2013, it is classified as an endangered species by the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service; however, there have been proposals to downlist it to threatened. The wood stork is the only stork that presently breeds in North America.  In the United States there is a small breeding population in Florida, Georgia, and South Carolina.

February 15, 2014:  Bald Eagle

I spotted this bald eagle in the Apalachicola National Forest this past week. Florida has one of the largest Bald Eagle populations in the United States.  Male and female Bald Eagles form life-long bonds and return to the same nests for years.  They feed mostly on fish, but may also eat wading birds and small mammals.  They can be found not only in Florid's wildlife areas, but in and near cities as well.  So keep your eyes out for these majestic birds.
