  1. Great combination of the species and its habitat. Looks like you had an enjoyable and productive day :) Posted 6 years ago
    1. Very. It seems like it's the start of the breeding season for lots of the birds over here right now, so there was a lot of activity... plus this park is a bit further south and a bit closer to the gulf coast than I usually venture, so I saw a slightly different mix of birds for me, which was fun.
