We kept running into the same bird brains down in Florida!
Take for example the Boat-tailed Grackles. Man were they strange! Can you even imagine being in Florida and wanting to hang out in parking lots all the time?!
Yes, super strange, and NOISY!
Oh, and GRUMPY!
I mean, not even Disney could cheer these guys up!
Then there were the Black Vultures, gangs of them, just hangin’ out.
And watching, from way up high.
Every time I looked up there was at least one circling.
Talk about creepy!
Then there were the Northern Mockingbirds. Okay, yes, we see them at home on Cape Cod, occasionally, from afar, in the summer, but in Florida THEY WHERE EVERYWHERE!
And all the time singing their happy song. And singing.
And SINGING! I mean enough already!
Here, see what I mean?!
And how about these goofs!
Or this NOSY bird!
Don’t get me wrong. We had fun in Florida. It was just hard with all the annoying crowds!
