Florida's IBIS Live Among Mangroves

Florida's IBIS is indeed a beautiful bird! They live among the mangroves that line the shore and during mating season their curved bills turn a bright red! They also have beautiful blue eyes, which contrast to the red bills.

IBIS

The ancient Egyptians thought that one of their gods, Thoth, came to earth in the form of an IBIS. These birds are protected by law. They feed along the shoreline and in among the various type of mangroves that are native to Florida.

IBIS

We usually get to our fishing spot relatively early, while the birds are still having their breakfast and before many people are around. This is the perfect time to catch them with the camera!

IBIS

There are many beautiful birds and plants here in the Sunshine State! It is one of the many reasons I call my home Paradise!!! Come and see why for yourself!!!

BarbaraJo - When I was in Florida last month, I took an ecotour out of Islamorada.  I was amazed by the birdlife among the mangroves.
