Wow! What a place to be!

We definitely do. We are kind of on the border of Eastern and Western species so we get a lot of species at the edges of their range. We are also in the middle of a big migratory pathway, so lots of birds pass through. I saw my first Ibis last week. I guess they're becoming more common here.
