Green Cay and Wakodahatchee Field Trip Report – Mar 24, 25 2018

Jeff and 12 birders drove a couple hours south of Melbourne to Boynton Beach to check out both Green Cay and Wakodahatchee.  Some of us drove down on Friday night to be ready for an 8 AM start at Wokodahatchee and then tour Green Cay before driving home.  Several members did the entire trip all on Saturday or on Sunday. Others took the more leisurely route and birded Green Cay on Saturday and Wakodahatchee on Sunday.  Both days were delightful, lots of sun but mild temperatures.  Below are the lists compiled by Bert and posted on eBird.
