IMG_8595-c1-web * Joann and I make a visit to Florida, primarily to visit family.  But as always, there was time for birding.

It's incredibly hokey, with alligator wrestling, etc. But there is a marsh area where the gators are penned, that is also a rookery for waders -- egrets and herons, mostly. * 820 x 800 * (246KB)
