Black Point Wildlife Drive at Merritt Island NWR is an excellent spot to practice digiscoping, sharpen skills, and enjoy birds at close range at any time of the day, but especially at sunrise or sunset during the golden hours. During my recent visit to Florida for the Space Coast Birding and Wildlife Festival, I made it a point to hit Black Point Wildlife Drive near sunset. The birds. They were everywhere! It certainly was a spectacle as Wood Stork, Reddish Egret, White Ibis, and Roseate Spoonbill were within spitting distance of the drive! Here’s one of my favorite Roseate Spoonbill shots taken near sunset at Black Point.
