Sighting for January 9, 2015

James L. Monroe

Ecopond, Everglades NP
Miami-Dade County, FL

Walking the perimeter trail around Ecopond every 10 ft. there were at least 4 or 5 Great Southern Whites. On a number of bushes with flowers there was always between 30 to 50 on each clump. My estimate of 2000 is very low ball. Looking out from pond onto fields they were speckled with more Great Southern Whites. Unfortunately not a whole lot else.
