Yesterday I joined a group of birders for an early morning tour of the garden. This was my first time birding and I must say, it was fun, relaxing, and fill with great camaraderie. The expert birders in the group were happy to share their knowledge with novices like me, and after a while it felt like we were hanging out with old friends.
Fairchild will be holding these tours every Saturday morning for the next two months. March and April is the time when migrating birds visit the park for a brief pit stop on their journey north.
The Africa Redhead Agama, is not welcome anywhere in South Florida, this cute little guy I am told preys on smaller Florida native lizards.
Saturday was my lucky day, the Bromeliad society of South Florida was having a sale at the park, and look what I came home with.
Birding was fun, and I’m definite coming back.
