Florida – Merritt Island II

On our way to Viera Wetlands, we dropped by Merritt Island to look for bobcats again.  We got there early on a weekday and the place was quite empty, with only a few other diehard photographers and birders.  As I previously mentioned we had no luck with the bobcats but we did see a lot of interesting birds.  The best find of the morning was an American Bittern followed by flybys of a Wood Stork and Roseate Spoonbill.  We also found a large group of Black Vultures feeding on a wild boar carcass.  I don’t think I’ll forget the smell any time soon!
