Happy New year!
Just got back from a few days in Naples/Fort Myers area of Fla. and have a few questions:
1. Is the Lousiana Heron in my edition of Peterson the same as the Tricolor Heron in Sibley?
2. Why was by spotting scope stopped at security and then wiped down with a cloth disc of some kind - were they looking for traces of gunpowder/explosives? YIKES
3. I observed a mockingbird patrolling trees around 3 houses against starlings and grackles. But I also saw near by a bird silimlar in size with a shorter tail and through binocs black on face - was this a loggerhead shrike?
Also went to Sanibel/Captiva but not with birders - they idea of birding is to walk a beach :-(
Marty now back in Woodbury
