Florida Part 4 - Feb 3-4, 2016

I had only a bit of time for birding on my last two days in Florida but was able to get out and see some worthwhile stuff. On the afternoon of the 3rd Dori and I returned to the Zemel Road Landfill area for another shot at the two wintering SCISSOR-TAILED FLYCATCHERS. They were right where we found them on the previous afternoon.

The next morning I made a point of running over to Cape Coral to check on some of their BURROWING OWLS before my flight home. Dori and I had something like 8 or so owls in one neighborhood.

And that was it! A quick 5-day jaunt to the Fort Myers area. Some quality birding, a bit of relaxation, and plenty of sun. Looking forward to exploring this area a bit more during a future visit.

    1. Hi Kim, yes, I was down there probably a day or two after it hit the local news. Great bird!
