Birdwatching is a huge pastime for thousands of people. With so many different species to admire, it’s easy to understand what all the fuss is about. Before we moved to Florida, I have to admit, my knowledge of birds was somewhat limited to loons and Canadian geese. But after we settled down in the sunshine state, we soon found out about a wide variety of birds who strut their stuff right in our backyard. While plenty of small birds flutter around in the palm trees, it’s especially fun to watch Great White Herons fish for their next meal at the pond behind our house.
