We visited friends who moved from NH to Viera 5 years ago. I thought there were fewer birds at Merritt and Viera Wetlands than previous years, or at there were on the 2 mornings I was shooting. :(
Anyhow, here are a few.

A super set Allan. I sure do like your Kingfisher. I hope to get to Florida some day to see all those beautiful birds. It would be fun to shoot great subjects in good light and be warm too.

Any kingfisher shot I get makes me happy and this was about as close to one that I have gotten so that probably makes it my favorite of the bunch.

I did get several shots of the yellowlegs. I am keeping a couple more but liked this one the best. It is a rare day I find the water so smooth. The sun was higher in the sky than I normally would have liked but it worked out fine for the reflection.

What a nice collection of recent Fla. shots. So nice to see some green foliage but that Snowy and Kingfisher are great as is the Yellow-legs. Share more as you get them. I just got done shoveling the little extra snow we got over the night.
