Beauty of Lake Seminole Park

It's amazing such a beautiful place is hidden in a busy part of town. There's a Home Depot almost right across the street from the entrance. When you get into the park it's quiet and peaceful (except for all of the kids running around playing and yelling). It sits on the side of a pretty big lake and there are smaller ponds all inside the park. There's a big mound in the middle of one of the ponds with an osprey nest on it. There were already 2 osprey sitting on top of the nest when I walked by. Last spring there were 2 great blue heron nests with babies in the pine trees next to the osprey nest. I haven't seen any there yet but it's early for great blues. Even on a drizzling rainy day it's a fun place to spend a couple of hours.

  1. Hi,
    I stopped by from the Nature Blog Network. Lovely blog you have. Amazing wildlife in your parks, and nice photos. I also blog on urban wildlife, but in Manhattan. Our big excitement this week is a coyote running around in Central Park. Cheers!
