Continued with Hernando birding with a stop to Croom Forest as well as many other locations over the weekend aside from Chassahowitzka, including Kettering, Powerline, and Lockhart roads, Hernando Beach, Heather Golf Club, Jenkins Creek, Linda Pederson, Pine Island, Bayport, Silver Lake, Bystre Lake, Lake Townsend, McKethan Lake, and Lake Lindsay.
One great thing about doing the June challenge three years now is that I have gotten to explore the county and found many very nice natural areas I would not have found otherwise! Didn't get too many photos, but here is some of what I found, starting with a couple of shots of the beautiful pine forests at Withlacoochee State Forest's Croom Tract:
House finch (family) on Croom Road
Red-shouldered hawk and Sunner Tanager at Croom Forest
Purple Gallinule running across Lake Lindsay
House sparrow and brown cowbird family in Hernando beach neighborhoods
And many others including black bellied whistling ducks, red-headed woodpecker family, barn swallows, eastern kingbird, and pine warbler.
