I don’t consider myself a birder. I do enjoy seeing and photographing birds. As we travel we are privileged to observe quite a few different species of our winged sisters and brothers. The few facts I know about our avian friends is built on my training to be a Docent at the Denver Zoo. The instructor said, with birds look at beaks, wings and shape when flying. The beak tells you what it eats. The wings tell you things like distance and altitude. The shape is a quick visual for identifying species. I generally use a guide to common and notable species as we hike around wherever we are. Here are a few of the birds we have spotted so far here in Central Florida.
