And more baby bird action! A trip to the Gatorland bird rookery offered a lot of looks at nesting Great Egrets, Snowy Egrets, Cattle Egrets, Tri-colored Herons, Anhingas, and Wood Storks. Many are nesting right off the boardwalk and are easy to watch interacting.

Here are some photos from recent birdwatching adventures, taken at Viera and Merritt Island. This is my first Spring/Summer birdwatching. I used to only go in the Winter but I am addicted now I have to go all the time, and it's so interesting. Black-bellied Whistling Duck. Purple Gallinule. White Ibis. Cattle Egrets. Sandhill Cranes, the young one still learning from it's parents. Tri-color Heron. Roseate Spoonbill. Intensely pink.
