report is sponsored by FLORIDA NATURE TOURS, which offers tours to the Dry
Tortugas, South Florida, private guiding. For information go to
http://www.floridanaturetours.com or call 407-363-1360. Reports are followed by coordinates

ABA guide "A Birder's Guide to Florida" when possible.

PLEASE NOTE: During the months of June, July, & August the FL. RBA may not be
sent out on a weekly basis, but as needed in response to the decrease of bird
activity during the hot summer.

WAKULLA COUNTY
Yesterday 27th a WHITE-FACED IBIS was found in the Tower Pond at St. Mark's
NWR. The bird was loosely associated with a group of three Glossy Ibises. It
was either a basic (nonbreeding) plumaged adult or a second year bird. The red
eye was not glaring, but present. The lores were pink-red (D. Simpson, A.
Bankert, M. Hait). DeLorme p. 50; Pranty p. 76

Good Birding!
