J Blanchard Trail (Central Florida), 7/24/2011

On Saturday, I drove back from Orlando Wetlands Park by a different route than I normally do.  I took Econlockhatchee Trail north from Colonial Drive to University Blvd.  As a crossed the stream there and saw a bird I couldn't identify--a small black and white bird, with white wing-tips--flying a way from me.  So I decided to return on Sunday to see if I could find that bird again.  Unfortunately, I didn't, but I was impressed with what I did find in a predominantly residential area.  I walked the Little Econ Greenway for about 1.5 miles.

I also saw about 5 domesticated geese.  They looked liked snow geese with no black visible on the wings, but that would be impossible.  I'm pretty sure they were domesticated greylag geese.  I didn't include them in the list below.
