January 4, 2012 Birding in Key Largo and Everglades National Park   Leave a comment

I thought it would be a good idea to go back to the shell stores I saw in Key Largo area.  I wanted to pick up a few shells and ask a friend to incorporate them into a necklace.  We quickly discovered that there was a great deal of shells imported from Taiwan.  I didn’t see anything that said that it was plucked from the Florida area or the Keys.  A bit disappointing but at the same time I was heart warmed to think that conserving nature was important here too.

This day quickly became a day to capture birds.  On the way back from Key Largo Bill stopped so I could take a pictures of the Great Egrets.

I was happy that we could stop on the side of the road so that I could take pictures of these beauties.  I had seen them the previous two days but due to the traffic it would not have been safe to stop.
