Across the street from the St Augustine Light Station is the local gator farm. Besides a large population of alligators and crocodiles, they also host quite a few local birds. The trees surrounding the main Alligator swamp is filled with native water birds.
We saw a variety of birds including herons, storks, egrets and roseate spoonbills like this one. I spent a few minutes following this specimen because he kept watching people and anxiously looking around. I got the feeling that he was on the verge of moving and true to form, he soon took off to find a new perch.
