Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge is a wonderful place to watch see and photograph birds and wildlife. It is a resting place for birds that migrate. Sometimes there are thousands of migrating birds that stop, rest, and feed before they head for their winter spots.

Great Egrets

One of the most beautiful birds especially when they are in breeding when they have extra feathers when they are displaying for a mate.
