Did we see some other unusual birds? Yes! We saw some royal terns...and a passel of pelicans.

We learned some interesting things from the boat captain about mangroves and dolphins' mating habits. We found out that it takes two males to "herd" a female away from her pod and that the males use each other to restrain her while one does his thing. You learn the darndest things on these tours! There is no mating season for dolphins, they mate whenever they feel like it! Did you know that dolphins are second on the list of intelligent species? Man is first, dolphins second, and primates third. Elephants are #4, this is according to the ship's captain. Whaddya know!?
Was it a wonderful day to be out on the water? You bet! We thought this was a great way to get out and see nature for the day...especially since we don't have a boat or kayaks.....We highly recommend the boat tour in the Everglades 10,000 Islands.
