During my time in Florida I only saw two birds on nests, which is not terribly surprising considering that I was there at the end of January.  Most birds, after all, wait until spring. But when you see the two birds on nests that I spotted you will understand why I thought that two was more than enough.  Birding at the Space Coast Birding and Wildlife Festival is really pretty darn cool…

Sorry for such a short post – the next one will be longer, I promise!
