Belted Kingfisher, this little guy would splash down in the water to scare fish, then dive to retrieve one.

Jan, 2011 Trip to Florida

Arrive in Vieira, Florida today for my annual trip to the birding places around that area.  I will focus on Merritt Island, Blue Heron Rookery (near Titusville) and the Vieira Wetlands.  This year, due to a limited amount of time in Florida; I will stay on the east coast rather than jumping between the east and west coast.  Hopefully the birds will not be too impacted by the colder than normal weather.  I also plan to do some work on improving my HDR skills, looking for good contrasting subjects for images.
