Flamingo at Bunche Beach (morning) - January 23, 2016

Drove down to Bunche Beach in Fort Myers to look for a Flamingo today.  Amazingly it was there!  I got great views along with a bunch of other birders and photographers (some of whom were getting much too close to the bird). 

Some said earlier you could see the bird's feet and there were no bands, so it is not an escapee.  When I got first there in the morning, the flamingo was battling the harsh winds and rain, but still looking for food (not sure if he eats fish or something else?)

I never thought I would see one of these birds, except maybe if I made a special trip to the part of the everglades where they are sometimes seen.  What a great start to the new year!
