Florida Space Coast 2013 – part 2

Ha!  Right into part 2 with no delay.  I’m ready to roll after skimming through my 3,000+ photos for Space Coast Birding and Wildlife Festival.  In my previous post I had posted a bright red dragonfly I labeled “is this a very bright Roseate Skimmer” from Green Cay in Boynton Beach, FL.  Thanks to the expertise of Angel Abreu of Miami, FL, this dragonfly has been correctly identified as a Scarlet Skimmer.  Cool.  Thank you, Angel!

January 23, 2013 I was only scheduled for my opening keynote speach.  Unfortunately I forgot to take any photos, but the auditorium was packed and the audience was great.  During the day I got to relax with leisure birding at a fabulous little spot called Rich Grissom Viera Wetlands (or referred to by me as just Viera Wetlands in Viera, FL).
