At Home in Brookside Travels to Florida

I just returned from my annual trip to Naples, Florida, where I visit my family every January. To keep the trip fresh, we generally try to see something new each year. This year, we visited the Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary & Blair Audubon Center. We did not see an alligator (fine by me), but we did see a family of raccoons, several species of wading birds, hawks, turtles, butterflies, and a HUGE barred owl sitting in a tree. I was so excited about that owl; see if you can find him in the photo below. The guide said he was probably two feet tall!

I am now back home in Brookside, refreshed from the Florida sun, and ready to jump back into this unusually brisk local real estate market.

UPDATE: For your reference, a close-up of a barred owl:
