On my way to fly to several Caribbean destinations this past winter, I stopped at some of my favorite birding spots in Florida to photograph the feathered (and other) wildlife. The images in this gallery are from Merritt Island NWR, Wakodahatchee Wetlands, Circle B Bar Reserve, and the Rookery at the Alligator Farm in St. Augustine.
