Jacksonville, FL, United States
I bundled up and counted birds at Blue Cypress Park for the Great Backyard Bird Count. In the space of an hour, I saw a Great Egret, a Snowy Egret, five Hooded Mergansers, an Anhinga, two Laughing Gulls, one Ring-billed Gull, an Eastern Bluebird, a Belted Kingfisher, two American Crows, a Great Blue Heron, a Double-crested Cormorant, a Little Blue Heron, two Blue-winged Teal, 16+ White Ibises, and 28+ Canada Geese, as well as other birds I didn’t identify. I also took 135 photos. My kind of day.
