Our Trip to the Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge

Happy New Year! It was a cold and drizzly day in Orlando so Gareth and I decided to head out to one of our favorite spots and take advantage of the cloudy weather and do some animal and bird spotting. We were lucky to see lots of beautiful birds, gators, and even an otter crossed the road in front of our car!

When we arrived at the refuge Gareth and I also decided to purchase an annual national parks pass. Here's to a new year full of many more scenic adventures!
Ready for animals! Don't mind my squinty eye. 

Searching for gators...

A baby gator!


Roseated Spoonbills

Ducks galore!

More spoonbills and ducks

An egret.

Not sure what this little white bird is...
We take all our visitors to the refuge and highly recommend the adjoining Playa Linda Beach on sunny days. I think we will be back again in Feb when the Matts come to visit!
