Notes

This is my favorite location to photograph birds. You will see a large variety of egrets, herons, shore birds and birds of prey. In the spring you will see the largest grouping of birds, but my favorite time is in the fall. In the spring and summer it is harder to get clear views of the birds due to all the plant life along the shore. When the plant life thins out a little in the fall and winter it is easier to get clear views of the birds withot disturbing them. A good window mount for your lens is a good idea. this allows you to shoot from your vehicle without spooking the birds and wildlife.
