Orlando Wetlands Park

Another great outing we had was at Orlando Wetlands a freshwater area, about 20 miles east of Orlando .
Coots and Common Moorhen were both abundant at the park.

A lovely Swamp Sparrow was oblivious of our scopes and posed for us among the Cat Tails.

Both Glossy Ibis and White Ibis were in full show with all the iridescence enhanced by the Sun light. 
                              And American Alligator were in Abundance including some giants!

         What was a real treat was an Crested Caracara working a Turtles nest with some Black Vultures!
          it was great getting the wonderful Raptor capture as a lifer too what a great trip ,though I wish I had
          more time for Birding and DigiScoping !
