Watching the Wildlife at Green Cay
October 29, 2018: On a lovely cool afternoon, a group of South Florida TTN members and guests toured the Green Cay Nature Center & Wetlands in Boynton Beach. Carol Rasowsky, a volunteer at the center and an experienced birder pointed out such species as the iridescent glossy ibis and green heron as the group walked 1.5 miles of elevated boardwalk over the constructed wetlands.The site was originally farmland sold to the county at a reduced price on the condition that it would be made into a wetland.
Interestingly, the naturalist who designed Green Cay also designed the older 50-acre Wakodahatchee Wetlands in Delray Beach, which also has a boardwalk. Both parks attract a large variety of herons and other large birds, ducks, hens, and warblers migrating through. They also attract nature photographers with large lenses and fancy equipment. But our group managed to get some good photos using our phones. Many thanks to Carol for delightful and informative tour!
