The Cinnamon Teal was seen south of Jacksonville near Cape Canaveral at Merritt Island Wildlife Refuge (2 1/2 hour drive one way). The Canvasback was spotted in the pond adjacent to the St. Marks Lighthouse at the St. Marks Wildlife Refuge near Tallahassee, Florida (3 hour drive one way) which is west of Jacksonville.
