I am having a wonderful time at the 15th Annual Space Coast Birding and Wildlife Festival. Instead of going into the gory details at this moment, when I have been on the move constantly for three days straight and seeing lots of birds and birders and getting very little sleep, I figured I would just share some of my favorite intimate bird images from the festival so far.
Remember that all of these birds, like the Common Gallinule to the left, are wild and free to go about their business. The relative tameness of many Florida birds is one of the many reasons to come birding in this marvelous destination for wildlife.
