Come and watch the migration of birds. Most of the birds are Egret, Woodstorks, Roseate Spoonbills. My favorite bird of the Everglades is the Black Necked Stilt, a short bird in stature but truly beautiful. He looks like a small penguin with long thin pink legs. Also there are 5 kind of Heron we will look for the Great blue heron, the tricolored, Lesser Blue, Green Heron and the Black-crowned night heron.
WQe can not forget about the Ibis or Curlew, we generally see them all year but the
White and Scarlet Ibis are seen often, the Black Ibis is not seen as often.
