Great White Heron
great white heron Ardea herodias occidentalis

...or a great blue heron in white phase (Ardea herodias occidentalis), which happens only in southern Florida and the Caribbean. This is another shot from the Florida Keys Wild Bird Rehabilitation Center, also known as the Avian Modeling Agency. Or at least it should…

Definitely worth a stop while in the Keys, even for only a few minutes, but be sure to follow the trails down to the Sound as well. And remember that the place is privately funded and staffed almost entirely by volunteers, so drop a few bucks in the box while you're there.
