Summer bird watching.

common gallinule red-shouldered hawk viera wetlands

I went to Viera Wetlands last Friday. Not too many photos from the trip, but I did see lots of little ones, and some cool sights as always... the Great Blue Heron wrestling a Giant Salamander definitely stood out! Sorry I didn't get a photo of that, it was something that could not be seen without the help of my amazing binoculars!

This is my first summer spent bird watching and I have to say that even though there are a lot more birds in winter, there are some amazing things to see in summer. I've seen birds courting, nesting, and babies growing up!  It's also given me more time to focus on observing individual birds. Definitely worth the time to bird watch year round.
