South Florida’s Voice of Conservation
A Neotropic Cormorant was present at Wakodahatchee Wetlands on the morning of Jan. 4. It was in the usual location, on a tree island to the left of the "T" in the boardwalk.
Thanks, Jim. I've included this sighting in my South Florida Rare Bird Update (http://www.tropicalaudubon.org/rare-bird-update). Even though eBird no longer considers this species to be rare in Palm Peach County, I still consider it to be a rare bird in south Florida as a whole. Since this species no longer appears on eBird's Palm Beach County Rare Bird Alert, it's become slightly more labor-intensive for me to learn when it's been reported in that county.
In case you need any documented confirmation of its presence, I took this photo of it coming in for a landing on 12/19/20:
I see there's a link to a photo from eBird in your rare bird update - sorry, I hadn't noticed that when I posted.
