My debate for where to bird today was to stay local and visit Babcock-Webb Wildlife Management Area or twitch after the thick-billed vireo in Miami. Seems my enthusiasm for a long drive to Miami did not exist, especially as the potential of getting a tick on this ABA-4 vireo was a crap shoot. Lasts week's visit to the Everglades Ag Area took a lot out of me with the heat and humidity of a south Florida summer. So it was off to Babcock-Webb.
