Dec 1 – Merritt Island Trip
Meet at the visitor center at 9:00 a.m. and drive from there to the world-renowned Black Point Wildlife Drive ($10/car). We hope to be lucky enough to spot rails and Roseate Spoonbills, but are sure to observe a variety of duck species such as Northern Pintail and Blue-winged Teal and many wading birds. We will also stop at Scrub Ridge Trail to observe Florida’s only endemic species, the Florida Scrub-Jay, up close. Dixie Crossroads is a favorite for lunch.
eBird: 253 species
Accessibility: On Black Point Wildlife Drive, we will mostly bird by car – getting out briefly at various viewing locations. Scrub-Jay Trail is a 1 mile loop.
