Birds in Florida wildlife refuge


This video from the USA says about itself:

31 March 2018

A sampling of wading birds, waterfowl and shorebirds on a drive through Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge near Kennedy Space Center, Florida. There are around 300 species of birds at the wildlife refuge the most commonly seen on the wildlife drive are herons and egrets, ducks, grebes, ospreys and ibis – and of course alligators. For photo and video the best time is early morning with the sun rising in the east to get that nice rich light and pretty water. As the day progresses the light gets harsher. It is always a challenge to film pure white birds as automatic settings on cameras tend to lead to over exposure. In these conditions I sometimes under-expose by 2 to 3 clicks as you can see the improvement starting at 0:26 you can also experiment with white balance settings.
