We spent four days in the Everglades National Park. We took a ranger led canoe trip where we saw lots of alligators, but to our delight, swimming not far from our canoe, we saw our first american crocodile - all fourteen feet of him. Again, we saw many new birds such as the Anahinga. We got an especially close look at a mother Anahinga feeding her fledging chicks in the nest. We thoroughly enjoyed the bug free warm weather.
