I have showed you some funny pictures of the lizards, birds, snakes, turtles and even scary alligators that live near my home. I want to show you why these crazy animals live by me. First let's study a map to see where Florida lives: This is a bird's-eye view of my home. (I do not know the name of the bird who was looking at my home from this high. Sorry.) You can see that I live right on the very edge of the Florida Everglades! Everything to the left of my development is the Everglades. I think left is the same as west. We are less than a mile away!
Here is an even more close-up picture. See those wavy lines? Those are the sidewalks where I go strollering! Sometimes airboats drive along in the water. I do not like them, because they are very loud.
Many interesting things live in the Everglades, and sometimes they visit my home. Here is another funny bird I saw in my backyard. I think he might be some kind of wood stork, but I am not sure. He was too busy fishing to talk to me.Do any funny birds or animals visit you in your backyard?
