BIRDING IN FLORIDA

Location:  Kissimmee, Florida

Date:  January 30 to February 4, 2017

Weather:  Mostly sunny with almost no wind all week, warm 25-30C.

Report:

  • Seven White Ibises that arrived every morning, then left together just before dark.  They walked around the shallow areas and up on shore pecking at the ground and into the mud.  Fairly tame.
  • Between 6 and 10 Peacocks and Peahens wandered around the yard.  Once we seen them fly down from high up in a tree. 
  • A Female Anhinga showed up to the pond on at least two different days.  It would dry its feathers up on some kind of piping and would then sit up in a tree overlooking the pond.  Difficult to identify.
  • On the drive into Kissimmee and through the Carolinas and Georgia, many great tailed Grackles were seen around gas stations...at one place there seemed to be hundreds.
  • There were many Muscovy ducks that hung around and were quite tame.  They were all over the pond and surrounding area throughout our stay.  Difficult to identify.
  • There was a Limkin one day that was very difficult to identify.
More to follow...
