On our visit to Tampa for the New Year, we took a day trip to Fort De Soto Park in Pinellas County, Florida. Our bird of the day was the Nanday Parakeet. I had seen them in St. Petersburg before, but we were not birding then and had certainly not been counting them. I wanted this bird to add to my “Life List”. Within five minutes of pulling into the parking lot where you can pay for a ferry ride to Egmont Key Island, a flock of 28 flew over our car and landed on the beach. I could hear them long before I could see them. What a site! By the time I got my camera out and walked over to the vicinity, they were flying all over the place, taunting me to catch them if I could. They finally landed in this Mangrove Tree and this one perched up on top right nicely for me. Life bird # 343.
