As with Green Cay I had this marked as a place to check out on the east coast when we were exploring the area. As soon as I pulled into the parking area I had a hint of what was ahead since I could hear numerous birds already. What an astounding location! Since it happened to be breeding season, not only was there a variety of birds in breeding plumage but a number with offspring in many stages from newly hatched to a couple weeks old. It became very clear why a photography forum I frequent to gather tips of getting good photographs of birds had so many excellent photos naming "Wako" as their location.
