My first Wurdemann’s Heron (parents are a great blue heron and a white morph great blue heron).  They are fairly rare and mostly seen in south Florida. Our sailboat captain pointed him out while we were kayaking around some mangroves about an hour south of Key West.  He looks almost like the great blue heron but his head and neck are more white.

It looks like he has something stuck on his eye.

Red bellied woodpeckers were everywhere.

After looking all week for the white crowned pigeons, I found them in our hotel  parking lot the day we were leaving.

Random birds I found in Key West in April.
