Both springtime and Red-Winged Blackbirds are in the air at the Lake Apopka Wildlife Drive! Nesting is underway as birds molt into their breeding plumage
The Lake Apopka Wildlife Drive reopened just before Christmas. Even a foggy day there is a good day, complete with Merlin, Gadwall, American Wigeon, and a Vermilion Flycatcher!
My first visit to Viera Wetlands after Hurricane Irma yielded nesting Great Blue Herons, a fishing Belted Kingfisher, and first-of-fall coots!
