Wilson Ornithological Society

Today, I’m heading south and thus gearing up for birding Ft. Myers in concert with my visit for the Wilson Ornithological Society conference! My #1 target will be mangrove cuckoo, and after that shiny cowbird. Those are the only resident species that are in range. Otherwise it would be pelagic species migrating off the coast.

  • black-capped petrel
  • great shearwater

The keys host resident masked booby and migratory Antillean nighthawk.

Some species I’ve seen before but would like to see again…

  • American flamingo
  • king rail

If I really became desperate, I could chase some of the countable exotics on the east coast.

  • red-whiskered bulbul
  • spot-breasted oriole
