Mar 26, 2020 - Kayaking on the Peace River

West of Punta Gorda, but east of Arcadia, is a little town called Liverpool, with a park and kayak launch. The park will be closing tomorrow, so we were lucky to be able to use this launch today to paddle out to the rookery we had found a few years ago. The airboats weren't active, giving us a more peaceful time around the rookery. It didn't seem to be as crowded with birds as years past, but it was still special.

Mar 3, 2016 - Rookery on Peace River

This is quite the treat for us bird lovers. Last year we found a better, quicker, easier way to get to the island rookery by taking a long drive out Rte 17 to a little park where Hunter Creek meets the Peace River. Before this, we put in on the Port Charlotte side of the river and paddled quite a ways up river to the island. We saw many more roseate spoonbills this year and that's always fun. they are pretty birds but their heads look like they are related to the wood stork and the black vultures!
