Adjacent to Merritt Island National Wildlife Reserve, the Cape Canaveral National Seashore, and to Kennedy Space Center, Black Point Wildlife Drive is a 7-mile cornucopia of birds. And alligators. Even in January.
Herewith, my first-ever photo of a glossy ibis.
Thanks to Jim Robertson and Gwen Williams for recommending this drive
and other Florida bird hotspots.
Nice, I can see you’ve caught some of the glossy sheen – it can be quite noticeable in the right light.
Jim R – It was a sunny and showery day, so I was lucky to see this guy out and about when the sun was shining.
