Thanks to a suggestion from @marisa.taina , I saw my 498th life bird this past Wednesday! I visited Jonathan Dickinson State Park to see the endangered Florida Scrub-jays - I also serendipitously ran into some volunteers who were doing a Florida Scrub-jay survey on behalf of Florida Audubon. They invited me to tag along for a bit and told me that Florida Scrub-jays live in family groups, where the grown offspring help the parents raise the next generation of offspring. They stay in their family territory instead of migrating to new areas to establish territory. Because scrub habitat is disappearing in Florida, coupled with this familial behavior, this species is declining. This is so interesting to me, because California Scrub-jays (second photo, photographed in Anstine Audubon Sanctuary in San Diego County) were the most annoying alarm clocks for me when I was growing up!! Cal Scrub-jays are so obnoxious.
