Shiny New Year

2014 is surely still new enough not to have gotten much tarnish yet, right?

So far I’ve had a couple of abortive attempts to head to Jacksonville and see the Snowy Owl that’s been at Little Talbot State Park for the past few weeks. I may get to head there on Friday, but I am not sure yet. I know every day I don’t go risks the owl departing, so that’s a bit frustrating.

Otherwise, I’ve casually seen about a dozen species so far for my 2014 species count (yes, I am doing “that” again).

The Space Coast Birding & Wildlife Festival is coming up in a couple of weeks, and I am getting excited! If anyone’s interested I’ll have a brief itinerary of my field trips and classroom sessions just because I’m feeling all social and share-y. 🙂
