Bald Headed Birds

Tammy and I visited Everglades National Park one day this week to check out the wildlife. One of our stops in the park was Anhinga Trail, where we found lots of birds and alligators. Two of the more abundant species of bird were Black Vulture and Wood Stork, neither of which have feathers on their head. Yeah, they are ugly, but they are still cool birds.

Perhaps it was the RV parking area, or maybe a nearby dumpster, but the vultures seemed to enjoy hanging out in the parking lot. The storks were scattered along the trail, anywhere there was shallow marshy water for them to poke about in search of food.
