This island shares a common boundary with NASA's Kennedy Space Center. The picture below was taken from the refuge, John thinks that the space shuttle on the right is the one scheduled to take off later this month. It was originally to go up this Thursday, which was one of the reasons why we moved our rig here.
I mentioned hawks, this island has many osprey hanging over the waterways looking for a meal of fish.We also saw a lot of brown pelicans, ibis, and wood storks and a variety of ducks. I was very confused trying to identify the numerous herons and egrets, only to find out later that the island has ten different kinds of that species.
