On previous trips, we had gone to Shark Valley, and enjoyed renting bikes and riding around the loop road, and that was our plan this day. But when we got there, it was around 87 degrees, with bright sun, and we decided to just do some walking around to see what we could find. We did come across this juvenile Purple Gallinule, and were amazed at the size of its enormous feet!
