This morning I went to Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge, and I had a fantastic time. I went to Parrish Park (just past the bridge), Blackpoint Wildlife Drive, and Canaveral National Seashore. I brought my new Canon Powershot S100 camera with me and took the above photo with it. I'm pretty impressed with the camera so far. Other highlights were seeing many Belted Kingfishers, a few Reddish Egrets, lots of Yellowlegs, and both Least and Western Sandpipers. There were many ducks and shorebirds there, but nothing too out of the ordinary. When I stopped by the restrooms to walk the trails (near where I took the above picture), I saw a Sora and a Clapper Rail. The Clapper Rail was not acting much like a rail. It spent a considerable amount of time out in the open--always near cover, but in plain sight. These are my first sharp photos of a Clapper Rail.
