The 2 hour Tour should be plenty of time for this site seeing expedition, but if you would like to stay out longer  for addition photography  and bird viewing arrangements can be made for a more lengthy tour.  Early morning is best time for birding tours.
Birds in abundance are found,  including Great Blue herons, tricolored and Little Blue Herons, The Great White Egrets and smaller Cattle and Snowy Egrets, along with Ibis and Wood Storks, Caracars and Bald Eagles, just to name a few, present daily shows.  The Snail Kite on the endangered species list also abids here with us and can be seen hovering  over plantlife in search of lunch.
This Great blue Heron thinks he can go along for a ride !!!
