A group of 11 from The Audubon Society of the Everglades (West Palm Beach)
came to bird at Turkey Creek today as they have done for the past few years.
Last year we all birded in drizzly misty rain with lots of birds - this year
with a perfect sunny day we had to work for the birds we saw.  With a few
local birders that came with us and others that joined us briefly, the group
bulged to 20 at times during the morning.

1 Golden-Winged male (seen briefly - not by everyone)
