Space Coast: Saturday

Highlights from today: A leisurely morning in Titusville. A relaxed approach to Space Coast Birding & Wildlife Festival. Ample time to reconnect with colleagues while soaking up sunshine from a bench at Brevard Community College. Going to Merritt Island NWR's Black Point Wildlife Drive for the first time with Birdchick.

Watching three Snowy Egrets mooch from two foraging White Ibis.

Seeing gobs of Northern Pintails, Blue-winged Teal and American Avocets. Watching Glossy Ibis fly into a pond. Soaking up the blue and purple plumage of Little Blue Herons.

Hearing the wings of ~15 White Ibis fly overheard. Spotting three Wilson's Snipes near two Killdeer. Becoming hypnotized by an Anghinga waving its wings to dry them. Reveling in a beautiful sunset.

Marveling at a huge alligator. Becoming mesmerized by the acrobatic Tree Swallows zooming over the road. Returning to the city and finding a restaurant recommended by colleagues. Enjoying a hearty meal and tasty tiramisu with Birdchick at Portofino on South Washington Avenue.
