Another early morning sunrise start for the monthly bird count at the Indian River Club. A beautiful morning that was strangely quiet as far as the birds were concerned, though an uncounted number of warblers danced through the trees as we golf carted past, there was little else to see, which was a bit of a disappointment. Thank you to Joe Carroll, Roz James, and Susan Boyd for letting me tag along once again.
