This question came in through the comments from Kat Doc:
Great bittern photos! What a problem to have, to be "too close" to a bittern.
Birdchick, I am going to Orlando later this month. After my veterinary conference (5 days locked inside of hotel convention rooms) I have 3 days free. Any suggestions on places to go birding near Orlando?
Any Florida readers have a suggestion for her? I told her that she should look at the Space Coast Bird Festival site (so wish I was going to the festival, maybe next year). When I was there this week, I did Viera Wetlands (another entry about that forthcoming and Merritt Island). How about it, all you Florida insiders: tell katdoc where to go...birding that is.
