A brief departure from New England

I’m still hobbled with tendinitis in my foot so I don’t have any exciting spring migration tales to share or fresh warbler photos to post. I do, however, have a ton of photos to share from a recent trip to Florida. Sure, they are not genuine New England birds but they’re still awesome.
Savanna, Andrew and I spent last week in Florida for Andrew’s spring break. My brother recently retired to Naples and we visited Ed & Deb, as well as my niece Jessy (Ed’s daughter) & Kyle and their beautiful new daughter Raelynn. Yes, that makes me a great uncle for those scoring at home. Yikes!

There wasn’t a ton of time for bird walks, but Ed, Savanna and I did sneak in a few expeditions to the Everglades and local Naples parks. Here are some shots from the trip, jammed into one big blog post.

Back to New England later this week.

  1. Dear Chris: We saw a piliated woodpecker in West Norwalk last week. He/she was very high up on a large branch of a very large oak tree on our property! Moved around several branches eating & then flew away to the West. So exciting for us-we have lived here for 48 years and this was our first sighting! Hope you are feeling better.
