Viera Wetlands

Crested Caracara
This weekend we stayed out of the water. Our plans were a bust on Friday and Saturday had the Relay For Life activity were played three softball games and when I was done then rain came. Had plans to take a walk at Viera Wetlands(check our first post about this place for location and more information) on Saturday but the weather played a factor. Today we decided to go after taking care of some things. We had a good ride around the Viera Wetlands, where a Crested Caracara was the highlight of our afternoon. Since this is not a view from our kayak, it would be a view from our minivan, will share with you the pics and will not put you to sleep with the details. Hope you like them.
