    state - thats Life Estate?


    Saw a large Red Headed woodpecker - immediately my first reaction is to protect it along with other rare birds I see running around my property.

    Man, I liked to live here in downtown Starke, FL and take care of birds on my land - because it is so rare and its within a city limit. Town has about 5500 residents and the county has about 28,000. One of the poorest county's in the State of Florida - but I am 35 minutes North of U of F and 40 minutes from Jacksonville - good linkage being just 7/10ths of a mile from US -301 North.

    Is it Feasbile?

    Bird Sanctuary - I live there for Life and sell it to some bird lovers ....
    Other birds: Pair of Owls, small redheaded woodpeckers and one that stands over two feet with an Indian hat-red. Dominant birds ... Blue Heron, Egrets ....

    Dan,

    .... its got swamp - in Southern FLorida - Swamp Land is the most valuable.

    ... surrounded entirely by houses with an easement into it ...

    .... has the ability for a second point of access over the drainage easement to

    another side road ...

    ... I have kids starting to whoot thier bee bee guns at these priceless life-form.

    .... this bird got about 50 YDS from me and did this dance flapping its head from

    side to side and making an incredilbly, audio-able fuss.

    Had not seen it but usually once a year for a moment - he seems hopefully OK with me.

    I was thinking of getting a Peacock to distract him from the fact that I now live on

    this land.

    An old subivision never realized and never inhabited until now - still some

    primitive life forms running around on the property - like to do what ever to

    protect them. Even it means making some personal adjustments.
