Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary run by Audubon is a special place in SW Florida.  Crystal and I visited there a couple weeks ago and delighted in the many songbirds (what I used to refer to as LBJs... "little brown jobs"... for to my untrained naked eye, that's all they looked like.)  The Sanctuary boardwalks took us through cypress swamps, with alligators and wading birds, owls and hawks; through pine flatwoods, with the smaller birds. and a grassy marsh in between.  Pretty amazing place.  Meanwhile, here are a few of the LBJs we saw (not so brown afterall) -  the male and female Painted Buntings, and a Gray Catbird, plus a little blue heron from the swamp.
