The Roseate Spoonbills are back at Green Cay! I had three flyover me in the parking lot the other morning and they have been seen on numerous bird counts the past few weeks. If you haven't seen our resident pink bird then you should head out to the wetlands today. Though the summer heat has also arrived we have had nice bird action lately. The Black-bellied Whistling Ducks are here in good number, numerous species are sprouting out hatchlings, and the Black-necked Stilts are putting on their best nesting show.

Summer is such a slow time of year for birding in South Florida but it pays off to slow down and enjoy our year-around residents.
