Everglades National Park, Orlando: 6 reviews and 10 photos

  Wading Bird
by K.Knight

Sixteen different species of wading birds live in the Everglades. All have long legs for wading into the water to catch their food. In the 1930's approximately 250,000 wading birds nested in the Florida Everglades. In the spring of 1990, scientists estimated as few as 2,200 wading birds nested in Everglades National Park.

Although I am not a bird watcher, I could not help but admire the beauty of the birdlife in this area.
