Viera Wetlands, central Florida

I needed some exercises, so my favorite place to go is Viera Wetlands to get some exercise and watch the birds. I visited last evening.

https://www.google.com/maps/place/28%C2%B013'42.4%22N+80%C2%B045'35.5%22W/@28.228439,-80.759856,550m/data=!3m2!1e3!4b1!4m2!3m1!1s0x0:0x0?hl=en

I don't usually visit late in the day, but the few times I have, I have particularly enjoyed the visit.

2. I think central Florida is the best area to live in the eastern US.

 

We seem to be well represented on DU.

3. Great pics

I love the Floida Park system. We plan on visiting a couple next month on a trip to see my father-in-law.

(the tern and anhinga captions are switched)

4. Thank you

 

I haven't covered most of the state. There are so many places I should visit.

The captions are good for me. One time I know I had the captions correct for me but were wrong for everyone else. I think it became apparent to me after I closed Photobucket, where the pictures were linked, and I reset my computer. I can't remember it well.

5. There used to be Floida Scrub Jays

by my FIL but no more.

Last time we saw Caracaras and Swallow-tail Kites.

6. That seems to be the usual story for Florida Scrub Jays

 

Crested Caracaras and Swallow-tailed Kites are some of my favorites. Sometimes I see them at Viera Wetlands.
