But maybe a holiday with a little birding. And by complete coincidence some of the places we ended up going for a walk were great birding spots too! Although you can’t really fail to see great birds all around Florida – from flocks of White Ibis in your yard, Eastern Phoebes on your mailbox, and Palm Warblers hopping around your drive, to Sandhill Cranes along the central reservations of the freeways and Ring-billed Gulls trying to steal your sandwiches on the beach! The confiding nature of some of these birds gave me an opportunity to try out my new telephone…
It just so happened that while Justin was in Florida for the World Digiscopers meeting I was also in Florida for a holiday. A family holiday. Definitely not a birding holiday.
