Everglades Birding Festival

A couple of weeks ago I attended the Everglades Birding Festival. I ended up going on the South Dade Exotics and the Upper Keys Natural Adventure field trips.  In those two days I saw 46 species and ticked off 9 new lifers! Although I don’t have pictures of everything I saw, here are my favorites:

Red-Masked Parakeet, #336

All in all, it was a fun couple of days and I’m looking forward to the next festival and in the meantime, more birding around South Florida!
