Florida’s Cape Canaveral National Seashore with salt marsh areas. Part 3
The national Seashore is a very large wild refuge area. Location Map.
This beautiful coast line invites much wildlife. In summer attracts visits to swim and recreation sports at the beautiful beaches. Also I am encouraged to give local content and this will be a great photography outing.

The interesting thing about Florida’s seashore is the diversity of animals from Gopher Tortoise, colorful lizards, ibis birds, Bottle nose dolphins and Manatee. Even the Bald Eagle in the tree tops.
Plant life is just as diverse with black, white, and red mangrove especially with the mosquito lagoon and this wonderful CANA’s 24 mile stretch. The Oak scrub and pine flat woods are common such as Saw palmetto, Myrtle oak, Fetter Bush, Stagger bush, Wax myrtle, and Gallberry pine. These trees are wonderful for nesting and are self pruning. Eagles nest in the tallest pines.
Birds in my 3 posts range from Egrets, Storks, Pelicans, Herons, Rusty blackbirds, Ibis,
and Anhinga. I hope you enjoyed my special on Florida’s Nature wildlife.
