Horseshoe Lake

The day after my friend and I visited the Crown Valley Tiger Sanctuary, we decided to end my weekend with her at Horseshoe Lake, looking for blue herons and any other wildlife we may run across. I first spotted several turtles sitting on logs in the middle of a pond near the lake.

We also spotted several blue herons and great white egrets.

The most unique and unusual bird we spotted was a juvenile bald eagle. I spotted a large bird across a field and my first thought was “well, that’s a big bird… can’t be an owl, it’s noon, can’t be an eagle…holy crap it’s an eagle”. We trekked a little more than halfway through the field before he took flight to get away from us.
