Over look of 2012

Snail Kite
 We had a very good year, good birding, good travel and good health.
We ended the year today by spotting a new bird to add to our Florida and Life List, the Snail Kite.
Collage of the the National Parks, Memorials and Places.
 We added 17 National Parks and Historical Places to our count, that doesn't include the Presidential homes we visited as they not National Parks.  We have visited 76 National Spots to date.

Some of the new birds added to our life list.

 We added 36 new birds to our life list this year.  I also kept a year list which we ended up seeing 325 species of birds this year.  We have 100 species on our Florida list so far.  Our life list total is 475 species.

We like to wish all our friends and readers Happy New Year
