As the season winded down, there was one last trip to the Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge. It was warming enough that the alligators began to arrive.
A reddish egret in a rare moment of standing still
The roseate spoonbills continued throughout the season, much to my delight
An immature tri-colored heron had learned to fish on its own
And possibly a flock of godwits?
And a tri-colored heron catching the sunset
