One of the things I love about visiting the Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge is you never know what you might see. On Sunday, July 16, I saw some birds I expected and one that was unexpected.
That seem appropriate since I wasn’t planning on heading to Merritt Island. As the sun was rising, I was heading east to the Orlando Wetlands. But after a brief stop there, I decided to keep heading east to Titusville and then on to Merritt Island.
Two of the spots I regularly check out at MINWR both have drivable routes – Black Point Wildlife Drive and Biolab Road. And I saw some Snowy Egrets, Green Herons and a surprising appearance from an Eastern Meadowlark.
