A Nice Place For Birds in South Florida

Wakodahatchee Wetlands, Delray Beach, FL

Here's a photo of typical Florida wetlands. South Florida is in the midst of a serious drought. The special wetlands that are operated by the local water departments are so very important to our birds at a time like this. These wetlands are safe havens for the birds to live, breed, raise their young, play, eat, and just have fun. The "natural" wetlands in the undeveloped areas of South Florida are having very serious drying out right now. In a short time, the rainy season for our subtropical oasis will begin, then we will be watching our lakes and canals wondering if they will overflow in to our living rooms. But for now, I am happy to say that the birds who find these beautiful wetlands managed by our water departments, are happy and healthy.
