the snowbirds have landed

St. Augustine, FL

November 2, 2011

Having followed the fall foliage from New England, we have reached St. Augustine.  It is a joy to get our feet in the warm sandy beaches here.

A visit to the Alligator Farm,  captured the roseate spoonbills returning to roost in the tall live oak trees.  When feeding, they rhythmically swing their spatulate bills from side to side.

My new friend at the Alligator Farm is a rare square nose crocodile.
