This section should properly be labeled Canoe Creek Road since Joe Overstreet is but one lake access road branching off of Canoe Creek as it heads south from Kissimmee.  Others include Lake Cypress Road and a few less productive spurs such as the Three Lakes Wildlife Management Area, as well as Canoe Creek itself.  However, Joe Overstreet ends at Lake Kissimmee, and the facilities there are, while not huge, substantially more spacious and feature rich than any other road.  Consequently, if one has to choose one road to spend time on, Joe Overstreet is the one.

The boat dock area and surrounding environs provided several imaging opportunities, including as it turned out, eagles, albeit immature ones.  But the road itself also provided opportunities as well.  One can find opportunities to capture images of various passerine species all along the road, even on the fences and vegetation bordering the road.  In fact, eastern meadowlarks were so prevalent that I devoted a whole page to them, especially to one tolerant bird that posed for fifteen or twenty minutes.

The only down side of this area is there just aren’t many good places to stay in Kissimmee, especially on the south side!  If we ever go again, we’ll just leave early from Viera and make the 75 minute drive in the morning.
