Everglades National Park
The warm, shallow, and vast Everglades "river" attracted mainly wading birds to this region for thousands of years. In the 1800's, the well-known naturalist and artist, John James Audubon, wrote during a visit to south Florida, "We observed great flocks of wading birds flying overhead toward their evening roosts .... They appeared in such numbers to actually block out the light from the sun for some time."
