Here are a couple of odd looking grackles taken at Green Cay. We also have a Palm Warbler with a perfect white stripe on the back of its neck. It almost looks like a little white necklace. I look for the warbler every bird walk at its usual location. It's nice to be able to recognize an individual bird from all the others.
After being gone for 9 days I am a little behind on work and life and there may be some sporadic posts at the beginning of this month. I just put down a deposit on my new house, I have a trip planned tomorrow to Everglades National Park, and I am way behind on my work at Green Cay. That being said, I am really looking forward to 2009 and all the good things it may bring. Come back for a post on my Miami CBC, trip to South Carolina, and adventure in the Everglades.
