Wildlife of the Mosquito Lagoon and Indian River Lagoon

The Mosquito Lagoon and Indian River Lagoon are not only great places to fish, they offer some excellent opportunities to observe a variety of wildlife. All of the birds and animals below were photographed by me in Mosquito Lagoon or the Indian River. Bring your camera along on your fishing trip as you never know what we may encounter.
