Beaches and Birds

A Blogging Forum for those who love both.



We are Michael and Mercedes. We met online in 2012 and knew we had alot in common, after all the personality form we both filled out on the dating website said we did! We got married in April of 2013 and guess where... on a beach! Central Florida is our home and we are literally surrounded by some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Recently we found we have something else in common, our love of nature and more specifically birds. 

Our first birding expedition was at the Merritt Island Black Point Drive near the Canaveral National Shoreline in January of 2014 and since then we've become "hooked" on finding, observing and photographing some of the most beautiful and elusive creatures on this planet. We want to share our experiences, our photographs and our new-found wisdom with you. So welcome to our Beaches and Birds Blog, a place for those who love both.
