A small but enthusiastic group of birders kayaked up the south fork of the St. Lucie River in Stuart on Saturday December 8, 2018. The group went 6.4 miles round trip. It was quite an accomplishment to go so far, but the paddling was easy, it was just quite a long distance. Kudos to all the participants of this trip for fortitude and accomplishment. At the halfway point at a camp site, the group gathered at a picnic table and enjoyed lunch.
Twenty species of birds were seen. Two highlights were a yellow crowned night heron and a barred owl.
