Migrating Birds in the Everglades

9

On a ride with Everglades airboat tours in Fort Lauderdale, visitors skim across what is sometimes called a “river on grass.” In the Everglades, which is a slow-moving river, visitors can hear a chorus of frogs and cicadas, and they can safely observe alligators lying on the sun-warmed shore.

View Migratory Birds in the Everglades and Endangered Animals in a Natural Setting

Tourists can also view a variety of birds in their natural habitat. Unusual birds appear during the migratory season in this warm and beautiful area of swampland. Over 360 different species of birds have been spotted in the Everglades, most belonging in one of the following categories – wading, land, and prey.

Some of the birds that tourists may catch sight of are the roseate spoonbill, varieties of egrets, the great blue heron, the black-necked stilt, white and black ibis, and ducks such as the greenwing teal. Egrets and herons, as well as ibises and spoonbills are wading birds, that you’ll often spot walking in the shallow waters of the glades on the hunt for food.

The Everglades, once the territory of the Seminole Indians, remains the home of various plants and animals. Among them are several endangered species that have adapted over time to the subtropical and wet environment.
