Viera Wetlands & Merritt Island NWR

Sunrise casts an orange glow over Viera Wetlands as the fog begins to burn off.

We made a trip to Viera Wetlands on January 8th.  Fog transformed the wetlands each morning, adding interest to the scenery. But the highlight of the trip was the full moon rising over the nesting Great Blue Herons as the last light of day illuminated the birds.  We took an afternoon drive over to Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge and found beautiful Northern Shoveler ducks as well as a few Roseate Sponbills.  As we were leaving Viera on the last morning, an otter made an appearance in the distance.
