Cocoa Beach/Merritt Island

Hi - will be heading to Orlando area late July for 2 weeks. First week will be at Disney but 2nd week will be roving around - initially staying with relatives in Lake City but then having a couple of days in Cocoa Beach.

Managed to tick off a large number of target species last time out but looking forward to some time on the coast.

Any recommendations for things to do / to avoid end of July, beginning of August?

Dehydration! use a wide brim hat and carry plenty of water.

But was that what you were asking? Or what do you really want to know?

I recommend birding by AC'd car - Lake Apopka Wildlife Drive, Merritt's BioLab Road and Black Point. Migrating shorebirds and local birds are likely about that time.
