Birding trip

My mother is down Florida on a 10 day birding adventure trip. I managed to spend the other day with them while they were in the area. I can say I can't handle doing the birding thing, but I appreciated the birds I learned while I was out in the field with the group. I only have good pictures of the larger and slower birds, those little buggers are too small and move too fast to really get any good images of them.

Damnit! I would've loved to meet the legend of Momma O'Connor.

For someone who doesn't care to go birding, you sure have some awesome photos. I really like the one of the white pelicans.
