I was in Orlando, Florida all week for the School Specialty National Sales Meeting. In between meetings and in the afternoons, I spent my time walking around the resort birding. I give kudos to my company for putting us in a resort right next to a preserve. I saw:
Great Blue Heron
Little Blue Heron
Common Moorhen *
American Coot *
44 species with FOUR LIFE BIRDS.
(Hey, I'm new at this birding in FLA thing)
So, if you absolutely must stay at Disney in the future, might I suggest the Coronado Springs Resort? It's quite nice, bird-wise and has fine meeting rooms too!
Ok, so now that that's over with, I am delighted to report that Oiseau and I finally had a PINE SISKIN on the WINDOW FEEDER today. My dog hopped up on the counter to inspect and confirm the sighting. He and I both agree, without-a-doubt, that it was a SISKIN!
I do, however, have some questions on this past week's BIRDCAM expedition. Whilst I was enjoying sunny, warm Florida, a few guests arrived that, well... what do you see?
It's good to be home!
