Some of the finest birding in all of North America can be enjoyed in Florida (as I and hopefully many of you can discuss at the 2011 Space Coast Birding and Wildlife Festival in January). Some of our finest bird bloggers reside there as well. I don’t know if Eva of The Flying Mullet is an Orange State endemic, but your bird blog list is not complete without a visit to her stellar site. Be sure to browse around after you enjoy her back-to-school edition (yikes!) of I and the Bird #131.

Where have you been and where are you going? Your travels matter to the audience of I and the Bird, as long as your trip reports include plenty of birding and wild birds. Our next edition of IATB will be hosted by the inimitable Carrie Laben of Great Auk – or Greatest Auk?, who happens to be on the move herself. Catch her in stride with your link and summary at labenc AT gmail DOT com or send your submission to me. Either way, we need your contribution by August 17 for the 8/19 edition.
