Fall along our Space Coast

Space Coast OutdoorsWhile we don’t get the fall colors you get up north here along the Space Coast of East Central Florida, it’s still a great place to visit and or live here. This is the time of year when outdoor activities really begin to pick up here. The fall run of mullet is here in the Indian River Lagoon as well as along our beaches, bring outstanding fishing as redfish, trout, snook, tarpon an many other species of gamefish target the mullet. Fall also means the annual bird migrations are starting, and places like Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge, Canaveral National Seashore, Sebastian Inlet, and many of our other conservation lands become birding hotspots.

Upon arrival I quickly got out of the car, set my camera and began to shoot. After shooting a few shots of the sun coming up I spotted movement down the shoreline of the lake, a feeding Limpkin.
