Wakodahatchee Wetlands

Chris " Situated on 50 acres of previous wastewater utility property, Wakodahatchee is a constructed wetlands that is free to the public. The site features a three-quarter mile boardwalk that crosses between open water pond areas and islands. A part of the South section of the Great Florida Birding Trail, Wakodahatchee is home to an abundance of wildlife as more than 178 bird species have been identified along with turtles, alligators, rabbits, fish, frogs and raccooons."

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.
