Feb. 8, 2017 to Merritt Island and the Cape Canaveral Sea Shore:
This was the one place I knew I wanted to go to before we even came to Orlando. I came across several people at Wakodahatchee last year that said I had to go to Merritt Island for the best birding. It is a bit of a drive from the Orlando area---about 1 1/2 hours, but it was a pretty drive.
Our first hint that we were going over a large body of water and over to an island.
Looked like a lot of potential right off the bat.
