The vicissitudes of family life are such that I am once again heading to Florida. This time, besides a hearty turkey dinner, I’m getting a trip (albeit brief) to the Everglades out of it. This, of course, fills me with glee.

However, my mad internets research skills have failed me when it comes to getting a bead on Florida scrubland specialties, such as Scrub Jay, obviously, and Burrowing Owl. I’m going to be as far south as Fort Myers and as far north as Lake Tarpon, on the western coast and with a limited mileage latitude. Anyone got any suggestions?
