Florida Keys Birding and Wildlife Festival

Brown noddyAny South Floridian looking for an outing next week ought to consider the Florida Keys Birding and Wildlife Festival, which opens Tuesday and runs through Sept. 30. The Keys offer the last ground in the USA in the fall migration of birds headed to the Caribbean or Central or South America, and thousands of birds pass through, including some not seen any other time in the subtropics. The festival is aimed at families and has the fringe benefit of introducing people to parts of the Keys they might not have seen before. Read the full report here.
