Hard to say if they will stay, or not. They've been here for over a month now. I can definitely keep an eye on them and let you know.

It is on the state list of species of concern but not federal. It is protected under the federal migratory bird act. (source=Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission website)

Apparently they were really low in numbers here not long ago but have been making a comeback. There seem to be numbers of them here in Palm Beach County and also apparently there are lots of them at Merritt Island NWR which is near Titusville, by the space center. I see them in numbers at several of the wetlands I visit regularly. They are really cool birds, sort of ugly in a way and also quite beautiful. One of my goals this year is to see a nest with chicks. Working on it.

Thanks for the info! Ugly is not a thought I had as I opened the photo. That thing is nothing but beautiful to me!

Same here but up close their bills and heads are sort of weird looking. I have tons of pictures of them on my flickr page...their bills are perfect for how they feed, though.

Considered that option, but I doubt that either of those airports would have direct flights from Seattle. He would have to take a connector flight and would still be an hour away.

I've flown London ON-Chicago, good connection but you end up in O'Hare's international terminal, where the delays are terrible. But the other direction should work fine.

When flying from Canada to Chicago, always fly from an airport with US customs preclearing.

Detroit airport is fine and modern, problem is it doesn't have such great connections and it's at the far end of the city so you have to endure heavy traffic and freeway tangles to get across the border.

C&C always welcome.

Watch for their orange tail feathers too.
We saw one somewhere near Sarasota I think a couple weeks ago with a broken bill, the locals knew him and called him "Chip" ! :lol:

You can get quite close to them at the St Augustine Alligator Farm. I don't know if things are ahead of schedule this year or not.

Between the Merritt Island NWR and New Smyrna Beach is the small community of Oak Hill. There is a road from the flea market on the north side of the town that goes to the water, also from the blinking light at the center of the town, but it has some lefts and rights. The road that parallels the water has a restaurant, Goodrich's, and it has an outdoor seating area with views of the intercoastal waterway. White pelicans hang out there from time to time. Brown pelicans are there year round and other shore birds. Across the road to the west is a wet land with a viewing deck. Herons, ibis, egrets, spoonbills and ospreys are common. It has to be the right season for the spoonbills, however. Many other birds show up from time to time.
The best thing is you are never far from good food and hot coffee.

Excuse the images, they were taken before I got my 7DII, but they are from that spot.

Great thanks and if you don't mind one more question from border how long is the drive to see the snowy owls. Thanks

I live in windsor but i don't get out to often to check out the snow owls. There is a man i met about 2 weeks ago who is retired from GM and spends his days out with his camera. If you look on facebook for a MEL DIOTTE he has about twenty some owls to his credit and may be able to help you. let me know if there is anything i can do to help out as i have tomorrow off and its my second time out looking for them. edmundmueller@hotmail.​com
