Birding In Florida
Bird watching in Florida is a great way to experience the real Florida with many places across the state. State and National Parks offer greating birding, however there are many places like the Viera Wetlands
just south of Cocoa Beach
where most of these pictures were taken. Bill Odom photographed many of the native birds shown here.
In 2008, the Ritch Grissom Memorial Wetlands at Viera
were included in the East Section of the Great Florida Birding Trail. The wetlands are an integral component of Brevard County's water reuse system. Providing increased water quality and savings over traditional water treatment methods, the constructed wetland system polishes reclaimed water for irrigation or overflow into the adjacent Four-mile Canal. The Viera Wetlands are located at west of I-95 on Wickham Road
