Hiking at Robinson Preserve

Thursday October 8th 2020

I spent some time hiking in the Robinson Preserve today. The preserve is a large tract of coastal grasslands, marsh, and mangroves along Tampa Bay in Bradenton just west of where the Manatee River empties into the bay. There are walking and biking trails along with observation areas overlooking the ponds and bay. The preserve supports a diverse range of plant and bird life.

It was a very hot and humid day. Walking around the preserve was a real sweat producing exercise. I spent about three hours on the trails pausing now and then to take a few pictures of the terrain and birds. A sample of the pictures are included in here.
