St. Augustine Alligator Farm Zoological Park. It's a tourist attraction for alligators, with a large bird rookery where the wild birds naturally nest. I have wanted to visit for years and finally made it! My first time out there and definitely not my last. I was particularly excited to see Roseate Spoonbill's and Wood Stork's nesting as I had yet to get a good look at their nesting sites elsewhere. There are a number of other birds nesting there as well, especially Tri-colored Heron's and Snowy Egret's. .
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.
I took a brief ride down Black Point Drive at Merritt Island NWR recently and said hello to some of my Winter (or all year!) favorites. Hooded Mergansers: Wood Stork: The elegant American Avocets: Roseate Spoonbill: Juvenile Little Blue Heron:
