A cold breezy morning was still good for photography at Lake Apopka Wildlife Drive – Drake Canvasback, Yellow Warbler, and American Bittern
The photography at Lake Apopka Wildlife Drive is awesome this summer! Fork-tailed Flycatcher, Blue Grosbeak, Loggerhead Shrike, Indigo Bunting
Lots of birds at Viera Wetlands, including Wilson’s Snipes, American Bitterns, an Osprey with Fish, courting egrets. Plus an elusive mystery snake!
American Goldfinches brighten up even the nastiest gray morning of backyard birding
