Awesome! What else did you get?

 

So far: Muscovy duck, Wood stork, anhinga, white ibis, fish crow, boat tailed grackle, palm warbler. 
And all in my family’s pond in back of their development! I’ll try green cay and wakodahatchee later this week or next week.

Nice! How did you know the fish crow?

Sound. I’ll try for a recording later. Also, I didn’t rule it out, but American is flagged as rare, at least here in this neighborhood. 

Yes they sound very different than American. Sibley's shows American year round in all of Florida but I have also noticed that in some areas of Florida American gets flagged as rare.

Thanks. I’m staying at my family’s home, and they’ve got a pond in the back. I’m birding there now, at 7 lifers already. 

You should have a blast.  I live in PA, but travel to Florida a couple of time each winter to escape the cold.  I just got back from a 2 week trip.  As many times as I've been there, I still managed to get 4 new birds this trip (Whooping Crane, Snail Kite, Crested Caracara and Piping Plover).  And I only went out looking for wildlife on three days.

Have fun!

The White Ibis could land in the yard. We get them in ours sometimes. They often go from yard to yard or even walk right down middle of the street. Funny birds!

They did. That’s why the comments say some flyovers. 
I got lifer black vulture this morning!
