More Florida Birds For Lunch

A chance meeting with friends at a local birding hotspot provided some great conversation and birdwatching during my lunch break.

My pal Tom was there trying out his new Bausch & Lomb spotting scope, accompanied by two other mutual friends. The few minutes we spent together at Chapman's Pond turned up these birds:

Pied-billed grebe
Blue-winged teal
Snowy egret
White Ibis
Loggerhead shrike
Black-headed vulture
Red-shouldered hawk
Sandhill crane
Eastern phoebe

The day was beautifully clear and sunny. A day suitable for nomination as a red-letter day in the .
