Another Visit to the Merritt Island NWR

Wednesday April 25th 2018

Yesterday’s beautiful weather was repeated today so I repeated my activities as well. I went back to the Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge. Today I explored the Oak Hammock and Palm Hammock trails.


Much of the trail is along boardwalks. The marsh is dry at this time of year. The experience would be very different with water in the marsh areas.


Wind and mother nature have made some interesting displays of branches.


Even dead trees are interesting.


Wildflowers lined many areas of the trail.



The Oak Hammock trail area had several wild Orange trees.




On the way off the Island I stopped for a walk along the Indian River. This is the bridge into the city of Tittusville.




Great White Egret standing in one of the marsh areas.


Colorful bird that I haven’t identified yet.

Tomorrow I’m moving again. As I reluctantly work my way north, I’ll be in Georgia tomorrow night. Every day I drag my feet it gets warmer to the north.
