Birding in “The River of Grass” – Part II

Winter in the Everglades (The River of Grass) is a birder's paradise.  I consider myself an amateur birder, new to the sport.  The many visits to this park, turned me on to the sport.  This year the high water level is forcing many of the nesting birds to move to higher grounds and away from the trails, but there are always plenty of birds to photograph. 

Great Blue Heron

Double-crested Cormorant
Black Skimmer
 Brown Pelican

Turkey Vulture and Black Vulture

Expecting Osprey parents 

 This is the reason we come birding in the Everglades.  There were thousands of American Coot birds swimming in this lagoon, the pictures does not do justice to the sight.
