Where to stay

Philip and I birded on August 5, 2010 for about 6-hours from the south Dade farm fields, down to Flamingo in Everglades National park and then back north to Cutler Wetlands.  We had 62-species with 15-species of shorebird.  At Cutler Wetlands we saw an immature Bald Eagle fly in and easily catch a Laughing Gull.  Below are a series of photos taken of the encounter.  The Bald Eagle was pretty far so I had to do a lot of cropping.

Here is a list of birds that we saw:
Mottled Duck Ruddy Turnstone
