I see manatees in the Indian River Lagoon?
will be able to see manatees right from our docks in the winter
and spring, as well as many more interesting marine and bird
(porpoises) are always playing in the Indian River, and tarpon
(which grows to 6+ feet in the ocean) will jump out of the water
Pelican's Landing a good place for birdwatchers?
will be able to see not only the wading birds such as great
blue herons, great egrets, snowy egrets, little green herons
and roseate spoonbills, but also pelicans (of course). There
are several species of pelicans that call the Indian River home,
the brown pelican which is the most common, and the white pelican.
sandhill crane is a winter visitor to our area, and families
can be seen in the Sebastian Highlands residential areas.
you can see the great predators that call Indian River county
home all year long. If you are lucky you will spot the magnificent
symbol of our country, the eagle. More common sightings are
of predator birds such as the osprey and varied hawks.
west on State Road 60 you can see the magnificent and rare crested
cara-cara, a predator bird which makes its home around the Lake
Okeechobee area to just north of SR 60.
