Jeff and Rochelle led 20 birders around the Viera Wetlands on Sunday Morning and spotted an impressive 51 species. Although the ducks were few and far between we managed to find several raptors and some our the wetlands more secretive residents.  To review what we heard and saw, see the list below.

After a couple hours on the wetlands, the group drove to Pizza Gallery and had pizza and salad which was provided by Space Coast Audubon.  As usual, a good time was had by all.
