It’s spring in Florida and the babies are just bustin’ out all over.
There are celebrations everywhere here, with so many places to go and join in on the excitement and have fun in the beautiful Florida sunshine!
Florida is without a doubt, home to some of the most beautiful and also most Endangered Birds in America, like the Burrowing Owl.
If you have seen the movie Hoot, it is about our Endangered Florida Burrowing Owl and was all filmed right here, well all except for the Montana scenes~
The Florida scenery is gorgeous and the film is inspiring, hopefully you and your children will love it and find it as wonderful as I did.
And if you are a Jimmy Buffett fan, the music and the man are both in the movie, yet another reason to love it~
If like me, you treasure wildlife and animals, especially Birds, Audubon of Florida has all of the people, places, events and opportunities to get involved, on their website and their Blog.
