Lake Apopka Wildlife Drive continues to yield great birds, including American White Pelicans and Red-breasted Merganser – in June!
April is a great time to visit Fort De Soto for shorebird photography and the possibility of migrants
Fort de Soto’s North Beach never disappoints. This time, it turned up a Ring-billed Gull with a seahorse surprise!
I headed to Fort De Soto in early May to say goodbye to the shorebirds as they leave for their breeding grounds. I saw two Snowy Plovers!
