The Most Beautiful Birds of Florida Pt I [Bird Deterrent Sarasota]

Rufescens Egrett Fort DesotoPark

You might be surprised to know that this bird, in the past was a victim of the plume trade. This gorgeous Reddish Egrett was photographed at Fort Desoto Park in St. Petersburg, FL. Its amazing colors here start with a bright pink bill that has a black tip. This bird is larger than many similar herons, you may be familiar with, however it is smaller than the great blue heron and great egret. There are two different color morphs– you may see an adult with a slate blue body and reddish head, or an adult white all over morph. If you ever notice the plumage standing out in full ruff– on the head and neck, then you will know that it is mating season. Ref:

Did you know that White Pelicans are significantly larger than Brown Pelicans? They are some of the heaviest flying birds in the world. They do not plunge-style-dive as the Browns do. They happen to be superb soarers and can do so for long distances. [See video below]

Scarlett Ibis – Found in Trinidad and Tobego among other locals

Here we have the Scarlett Ibis– It is technically not a FL bird, however, the white morph Ibis CAN be found in Florida– and some scientists are calling for that bird to be considered the same species as the Scarlet Ibis. The Scarlet is the national bird of the islands of Trinidad and Tobago. The juvenile bird [below] ranges from grays to blacks, and it takes two feather moltings for the amazing scarlett color to appear. Only the tips of the wings remain black.
