Nearly extinct a few years ago, I found several in Sarasota. Here are two videos

Two videos below.

A few years ago, you couldn’t find one anywhere in the state of Florida, but they are making a prolific comeback in the Sarasota area!

I was down by the Sarasota Bayfront Park, by Marina Jack’s and whipped out my camera phone. There were several nesting near the base of the Ringling Causeway Bridge and others dispersed along the bayfront.

Interesting creatures. They build temporary nests. Temporary because the larger and more elaborate the nest becomes, the more people are attracted to it. Eventually, they just move to another location to start building again. It is pretty easy to tell from the videos exactly where they are currently located, if you want to go see them yourself.

Just stay back away from the nest, there are temporary fences put up to reduce the chances of people getting too close.

Sarasota has a rich and healthy environment that should continue to draw more in as time passes.

Enjoy the videos and let me know what you think.

If you know anyone who would like to make this wonderful habitat their own home, I work Sarasota county, Manatee county and Charlotte county.
