"Had a guided tour with bird experts"

We visited this lovely place twice and found it very enjoyable. It is located adjacent to the water treatment plant which may seem to be a negative point, but the effluent from the plant provides a pond that is attractive to wildlife (especially birds). There are lovely plants with identifying tags bordering a path that leads to a boardwalk with a viewing tower located over the pond. On the tour with the birding experts, I saw white-tailed hawks, brown and white pelicans, herons, cormorants, grebes, roseate spoonbills, humming birds, and other migratory fowl. This area is a great place for bird watchers, especially during migration season. The two experts leading the tour were very knowledgeable and generous in sharing their equipment (scopes). There's supposed to be an alligator in the pond, but we did not see it!
