Bird Board

Smooth-billed Ani

Seen June 7, 2019 at the very south end of Loxahatchee NWR. This is at the end of Loxahatchee road past the air boat ride area. There are two long dirt parking areas along the levee and at the end of this is where I saw the bird. It was in the tallest tree near the yellow metal gate and on both canals on each side of the levee. ~12:45 to 1:20pm. I have some rough pics, but can’t seem to figure out how to send them. :-( I went to this spot because someone posted two Ani’s in the Loxahatchee visitor center sightings log for May 8, 2019. Thanks to that fellow. :-)
