DAY 2 – 13 BIRDS: 104 and COUNTING!
Day 2 is in the books! After a mind-numbing 7 hour wait, about 15 birders from all over were finally given a photo op with the very rare, tropical Bananaquit! Other notable birds today were Hooded Warbler, Painted Bunting, and Short-tailed Hawk at Richardson Park in Ft. Lauderdale. After brief high fives, I had to try for another bird that was only 4 miles away!!
At the end of Day 2, I added 13 new species for a total of 104. Not bad considering I was standing still most of the day.
