Birds Of Central Florida We See Everyday

We always have these birds roaming around our properties especially in open places. They eat a lot of bugs and lizards keeping everything under control. We are told not to feed animals and birds so they can help the environment.
The sand hill cranes mate for life and take care of their young for a couple of years. Then they go out on their own to start their own lives. Can always hear them calling their young when they disappear from their site. They are not afraid of people or cars. The white Ibis birds always stay together too going up and down the streets especially after the grounds are watered. It is a treat to watching them sticking their beaks in the ground all dirty until they find enough to get full.

What a great picture, Sueanne! My husband got me involved with wildlife, though I always had a love for it, but we go out on expeditions all the time when the weather is nice, and bird-watching is my favourite.

These birds will let you walk right up to them to take a photo.

Awww... so sweet.

I wish more people encouraged birds around their homes, because birds are natures answer to bug and insect control.
