angus. with cattle egret aboard

near Henderson's Fish Camp in Lake Placid, FL

Cattle Egrets arrived here in Florida from South America
in the 1950's and have successfully established themselves.
This bird is in breeding plumage. Cattle ranching on the North
American continent began here in Florida. If you don't want to
pay high taxes on your "undeveloped" land in Florida, you must
have a certain number of cattle per acre. Your history of Florida
lesson for today. Test tomorrow :^)
