Little by little, we have paddled our way to knowing there, but it’s never enough; there’s always more to know. We are always eager to get back out there. We have experienced moments of unforgettable beauty: seeing the wash of stars spilling over the sky far from the city lights of Miami, gazing at flocks of ibis sweeping upriver at the end of the day to roost together in the mangroves, peering into pale-green beds of seagrass swaying beneath our boat and under the chickees in Florida Bay, watching stunning orange sunsets on the Gulf of Mexico, listening to barred owls calling throughout the night, observing the iridescent sheen of comb jellies in Alligator Creek, and glimpsing the pink of roseate spoonbills feeding in Garfield Bight.

Audubon wardens in the 1930s estimated a population of 250,000 wading birds, primarily white ibis, along with roseate spoonbills, egrets, herons, and wood storks. But that population was small compared to the sightings of earlier naturalists. They wrote of flocks that blackened the sky. For decades, dating back into the early 1800s, the beauty of these birds’ nuptial plumage charmed not only potential mates and Florida naturalists but also the eye of big-city fashion designers who sought to adorn ladies’ hats with feathers.

Sometimes, for example, large quantities of water have been unnaturally released into the park from dikes built to protect agricultural lands and developments. Such a release of water, at a time when water levels in the park would normally be low, can have devastating effects on wildlife, including the endangered wood stork, the only true stork native to North America. These birds are touch feeders: they locate their prey by moving their curved beaks in shallow water until the beak bumps into something, at which point it opens and snaps up whatever fish or crustacean it has bumped.
