Just a quick note from Florida – compared to last March, there’s a remarkable number of White Ibis in Tarpon Springs right now, but slightly fewer Egrets of all kinds. Still plenty of Ospreys; Good numbers of Wood Storks, Brown Pelicans, and Anhingas, and to my surprise, a male Wood Duck still in breeding plumage at the park today!

I’m thankful that even in this repulsive suburbanized landscape, so many beautiful birds find a way to hang on.
