Wakodahatchee Wetlands Bird Watching

Wakodahatchee is considered one of the best sites to view birds in South Florida.  Located in Delray, it has ample parking and a ¾ mile boardwalk that takes you over the top of wetlands where you can view alligators, turtles, fish and many different species of plant and bird life.

Saturday morning I joined my photography group to photograph birds.  I’m not an early morning person and getting to the reserve at 7AM was an effort. When I arrived, I was very surprised to see that the parking lot was almost full, who else but a bunch of avid photographers would get up so early in the morning. I soon found out that the mornings are magic.

My group was already set up with huge lenses and having a great time enjoying each other and sharing technical information on how to shoot the birds. The sunrise was spectacular and the  birds were active building their nests.

This is one of our favorite walks in the evening, but I am now a convert to morning walks.

  1. I love the image of the two Wakodahatchee herons that look like they’re sharing breakfast! I’m writing to request permission to paint them. I’m still classified as a “beginner” but absolutely love painting and this image touched me. If the painting turns out, I’ll give credit to you and send you a print. Would that work for you?
