A visit to the Flamingo area of Everglades National Park should always include a visit to Eco Pond. Early morning we found to be best.
A Video of Roseates feeding in harmony….
Roseates and Black-necked Stilt
Lots of Black-necked stilt this visit…
A group of Pelican this same morning…
I digiscoped a few Roseate spoonbills
checking to see what other birds were around.
I found this lovely flower..
It looks to me to be a type of morning glory that has yet to unfurl.
There were many Florida whites flitting everywhere..
Stilt on the other side of the pond…resting after their morning forage.
We leave the pond and go on another search for the leucistic Turkey Vulture..
Sadly we didn’t find the bird..
It was low tide and we were searching for Flamingos…sadly, no Flamingos either..Would have been a life bird for us.
On our way back east to our campground at Long Pine we stopped to walk around the Mangroves..
One must very careful while walking thru Mangroves…
Tall enough to keep the Mangrove Monsters where they belong..
If you saw my last post we know that Jeff and I have moved to Key Largo for a few days. More on that later!
