Orlando Wetlands Park is the Featured Orlando Birding Hot Spot

If you're planning a visit to Orlando and looking for a place to do some bird watching may we introduce you to a very unique place called the Orlando Wetlands Park? The Orlando Wetlands Park has a great theme; use nature to filter the reclaimed water from local cities and safely discharged the clean water into the St Johns River. Normally they take in about 16 million gallons of water per day from cities in the Western suburbs of Orlando, filter it through several ponds and wetland areas and then discharge approximately the same amount into the river.

These ponds have created an excellent environment for the wildlife and if you are into birding it's definitely an Orlando Birding Hot Spot. Some of the birds we saw were Great Egrets, Snowy Egrets and Cattle Egrets, Moorhens, Pied-billed Grebes and Purple Gallinules. We found White Ibis as well as Glossy Ibis and the list goes on. Our birding adventure at the Orlando Wetlands Park was complimented by a tram ride they provide. For a bird watching near Orlando it has all the features a birder would need for a self-guided tour. The driver of the tram was excellent at spotting birds too and we were impressed with her birding expertise. That's why todays featured Orlando Birding Hot Spot is the Wetlands Park.  #BirdingWithKenny
