One private club community on Florida’s Treasure Coast has yet to lose its natural charm. Tesoro Club, a 1,490-acre private golf community, prioritizes the preservation of its expansive natural surroundings. Whether relaxing at home, lounging poolside, or teeing off on the golf course, Members are greeted by picturesque waterways, nature preserves, and scenic lakes. This commitment to maintaining the natural environment has also transformed the community into a haven for a diverse array of bird species. Here’s a guide to the avian neighbors that can be found at Tesoro Club, along with some fascinating facts about each:

Blue Heron at Tesoro Club

Great Blue Heron

Great blue herons are often seen wading gracefully through the community’s lakes. While they are members of the heron family, they’re distinguished by their blue-gray features and white undercoating. Just like Tesoro Club Members, they enjoy this community around the clock thanks to their excellent night vision.

Great Egret

Great egrets are the largest of the white-colored wading birds in Florida. Often seen in wetland areas and along the waterways, they are known for their long, S-curved necks. During the breeding season, great egrets develop long, delicate plumes on their backs, which were once highly sought-after as a fashion accessory. Tesoro Club Members seeking the latest fashion trends head to the Club’s pro shop.

Tricolor Heron at Tesoro

Tricolored Heron

The blue-gray bodies, purple-tinged necks, and white bellies of tricolored herons make them stand out in the wetlands where they’re found. With a wingspan of up to six feet, these herons are impressive in flight. Their young take to the skies for the first time at around 60 days old and can travel for miles on their first flight. In comparison, our Tesoro Club Members can reach Palm Beach International Airport in just under an hour, from where they can fly anywhere in the world.

Purple Gallinule

One of Florida’s most beautiful waterbirds, purple gallinules can be found year-round in fresh marshes. Their striking plumage features a mix of blues, greens, and purples, making them stand out against the greenery. These birds are known for their agile nature, often seen walking on top of floating vegetation in search of food. With two onsite dining venues, The Cabanas and Terrace Grill, Members simply have a short golf cart ride to an array of culinary delights.

Osprey at Tesoro Club


Ospreys are easily identifiable by their white underparts, dark brown backs, and distinctive black eye stripes. They are known for their remarkable fishing skills, spotting fish from great heights and diving at speeds of up to 40 mph to catch them. Ospreys are skilled nest builders, and one has constructed a nest near Tesoro Club’s main clubhouse. A live camera has been set up for guests and members to observe these majestic birds in their natural habitat. New residents of Tesoro Club can build their own nest with Tesoro Club’s Signature Homes Collection.
