Birds of a Feather Flock Together

Brown Pelican
 I love the water, so naturally I adore many of the birds found in the Florida Keys. You know the saying "Birds of a Feather Flock Together".  I want to share some of my favorite seashore birds.

The Brown Pelican is an imposing bird.  This bird can weight up to 12 pounds! Pelicans make a loud clicking noise and love to eat fish.  I have seen pelicans chase fishermen for their caught fish.  I admire pelicans from a far.

Green Heron
I often see green heron walking on the boat lines of our boat slip.  They are very pretty birds.
Great Blue Heron

The great blue heron in a gorgeous bird.  This bird almost became extinct when the ladies in the early 1900's wanted decorate their hats with the beautiful feathers of this bird.  Now, we can just admire the feathers from a distance.

Ibis are seen throughout Florida.  They are most well known for their long necks and beaks which help them to get food out of the water. They are found inhabiting areas where there are large amounts of water. These ibis are enjoying life in the Florida Everglades.

Bay Moon Design Sea Gull Necklace and Bird Nest Bracelet
Sea gulls are another bird found by the water.  I got this handsome ceramic sea gull from Moriah Betterly and used to make a necklace.  She also made a ceramic bird nest which I turned into a bracelet.

This handmade brown seagull necklace is made of vintage wood beads, natural brass chain, and a ceramic seagull and twig by artist Moriah Betterly. This bird necklace has a rustic, woodland look. A great statement necklace for the summer!
