Bird Species of the Everglades
The Everglades National Park holds more than 350 species of birds and there are many ways to identify them. Generally, the birds of the glades can be placed into three different groups wading birds, land birds, and birds of prey. One of the most common kinds of birds you’ll come across is wading birds. Wading Birds all have long legs for wading in the shallow warm waters to catch their food. The White Ibis is a beautiful and commonly found wading bird. The ibis dines mostly on crayfish while most wading birds just prefer fish. The White Ibis is identified by its long curved beak that it uses to probe the shallows and mud in search of crayfish.
