All,

I haven't gone out to do any birding at all over the past two days, but
none-the-less had some great bird experiences here in old Charlotte County.
Yesterday on the way home from work a gorgeous adult Swallow-tailed swept
through the trees in a residential neighborhood and flashed over the car at
twice the height of my car!!! I know it's not a rare bird, but damn they
are awesome to watch! They are one of my favorite raptors.

Then I didn't have to work today (Saturday) but promised to meet some of my
co-workers for some Kayaking/Fishing at Ponce De Leon Park. I showed up
alone, but left to pick up Austin after he woke up. By the time Austin and
I returned my co-workers were fried and were heading home. The little man
and I spent the entire day kayaking and wading the flats exploring this
unique ecosystem. The fishing was horrible, but it was OK. Austin caught a
Blue Crab, a Hermit Crab, some snails, a couple Horseshoe crabs, a Mangrove
crab, about 100 Jelly Fish, and we saw a lot of other fish and critters
along the way. The one that was most exciting to me though was the one that
was grunting at me from the mangroves. Can you guess?!?... Of course, it
was that ghost of the mangrove forest, the Mangrove Cuckoo.

I had not one but two birds that were intermittently calling back and forth
to one another as we stalked the flats for Snook. The calls were spaced out
about 3-4 minutes apart, but I was surprised to hear this at all given the
date. It was near 4:30 PM and I decided to hop in the Kayak and paddle
around the corner to see if I could see one of the birds. When I got to the
source of the noise I was amazed to find that the bird was right out at the
edge of the mangroves in plain view. More astounding, the sun was behind me
and despite the birds active gleaning, it remained on the outside edge for
over a half hour (as close as one paddle length at times). As the bird
moved I'd either paddle in or out to get an unobstructed view. At one
point, I inadvertently crashed the bow through some overhanging branches
while gazing up at the bird and thought, "Damn, Game Over!" But not this
bird, it dropped down and landed at the top of the branch to see what the
heck I was doing making all of that noise. I finally left the bird after
5:00 PM and was upset that despite my prodding I was unable to wake Austin
to view the bird. He had eaten his sandwich and was zonked hard from
running around the flats in the wonderful weather.

I continued south for another 3 coves to see what I could see before
finally turning around. Austin awoke at about the same time, and I decided
to push my luck. It was 5:30 by now and the bird was still there. We
enjoyed this very rare treat for another 15 minutes or so before heading in
having fun with the wakes of each passing boat. Austin thought it was great
fun if I was able to get one over the bow and hammer him with water....
crazy kid.

When we returned home I finally caught up with my local Chuck's. Two were
singing in the vacant lots around my home. I've been listening each evening
and morning, but hadn't heard a peep before tonight. I really believe these
just arrived despite others being seen weeks ago.

Good birding,

PS - I will try and keep an eye on these singing Cuckoos now that I've
found them. If they remain reliable at this site I'll keep you all
informed. It's a fun, short paddle from the park.
