These American White Ibis are on what we call the Jungle Road which connects he east side of the property to the Gulf of Mexico. Great place to stroll and look at the flora, and you might run into something like these guys. They say there are bobcats in here, but you need to be along here at night and lucky to see them. Here’s another example of flora:
