No trip to Florida would be complete without spending time viewing its incredible birdlife. With the main focus of my recent trip being the wedding of our son Chad, I was unsure of how much time I could devote to wildlife photography. Upon our arrival, I soon ascertained that he and Sandy were quite busy wrapping up last minute details allowing me considerable time to pursue wildlife photography.
I decided to concentrate on the Florida prairie country south of Kissimmee. Internet research had revealed Joe Overstreet Road to be an excellent destination and I was not to be disappointed. This area proved to be an excellent place to locate many of the long legged wading birds along with Sandhill Cranes, the rare and endangered Whooping Cranes, Bald Eagles, and many more species.
