Abstract:
Wading birds, including ibises, herons, and storks, which once nested in southern Florida by the millions have decreased because of habitat destruction, A 1974-1975 survey located 41 colonies and 129,800 wading birds nesting in southern Florida. White Ibis and Cattle Egret were most abundant, populations of Great Egrets, Little Blue Herons, Louisiana Herons and Snowy Egrets were lower than expected. Wading birds nested year round but individual specie had more circumscribed nesting seasons which differed seasonally and between inland and coastal colonies.
