Orlando Birdwatching - a great morning spent paddling the Wekiva

The Wekiva River always attracts the birds. With its shallow waters, plenty of Lilies and natural shoreline it makes for an awesome birding spot and today was no different. The migratory birds are heading to Florida and that is always a good sign that Fall is here. We got to see Anhingas sunning themselves after a dip for a fish, White Ibis, Little Blue Herons, Pileated Woodpeckers, Great Blue Herons, Eastern Phoebe and Kingfishers….  just to name a few. Throw in a couple of small Alligators and Turtles out sunning, a nice breeze, great new kayaking friends and that all adds up to a great morning of birding with a twist.
