Birding: The "Locals"

Below are just a few of the birds that call South Florida home. Many of these "locals" can be seen on a daily basis while some, like the Mangrove Cuckoo, are more secretive. The rich estuaries of Florida Bay combined with the backcountry of The Everglades provide limitless possibilities to view birds on your life list.
