Skimming across Lake Kissimmee on an airboat provided lots of opportunities to see and photograph birds other than our target species, the Snail Kite. This shallow lake provides the perfect habitat for large shorebirds that wade along the edges and the floating tussocks in search of their next meal. A Reddish Egret takes flight in search of greener pastures (bluer waters?) after an unsuccessful search for something to eat.
