Beautiful place to raise a family ๐Ÿฆ๐Ÿฆ๐Ÿฆ๐Ÿฆ

These beautiful Wetlands are home to many of the birds I write about on Birder’s Journey. But they are also a favorite habitat for several species of turtles and fish, American alligators, and mammals such as river otters, the occasional bobcat, and of course, our local Raccoons, like this little family below.โ˜บ๏ธ

Unlike up north, where we feared rabies if we spotted raccoons out during the day, our raccoons in Florida “are nocturnal but can be active during the day, which is not an indication of illness.” For additional info about Florida Raccoons, see this article at Florida Fish & Wildlife Service.

  1. Sweet family. I am sure that we have plenty nearby in our neighborhood but haven’t seen one in ages. Sometimes I hear one “chirping” at night outside our windows so they are around. Haven’t heard of a rabid one in a long time.

  2. The wetlands are stunning and the racoons are so interesting and so much more beautiful than they are presented in cartoons. I have never seen a racoon (hence referencing cartoons!) and so I really enjoyed your videos of this wild family.
