I enjoy watching birds, small reptiles and mammals in my backyard and neighborhood. I occasionally will do wildlife-watching in other areas of Florida and the United States.
I am a semi-retired elementary school teacher who also had a prior career as a municipal recreation professional in a medium-sized city in California. I moved from CA to the Cumberland Plateau area of TN, but now live in North-central Florida full-time. Though my new neighborhood is suburban rather than rural, there are many birds and small animals around. I look forward to frequently updating this blog. The blog is an informal note describing the wildlife spotted here. All of the photographs that I post will be those I have taken myself. The camera I now use is a Nikon digital SLR, Model D-300s. I also use a Pentax digital point and shoot camera when taking pictures from the car. Whenever I post photographs, I will be posting them as “Thumbnails”. Be sure to click on the picture and you will see the larger version of that shot.
