Saturday, Feb. 4 was the Third Annual Florida Scrub-Jay Festival at Oscar Scherer State Park in Osprey, Fla., a one-day event with music, educational panels, vendors and guided walks to celebrate the Sunshine State’s unique bird. In my post about birding in Charlotte Harbor & the Gulf Islands, I blogged about some of the cool things about the Florida Scrub-Jay. Pretty neat, aren’t they?

Enjoy these snapshots from the festival and hope you have a chance to visit Southwest Florida and meet one of our rarest residents.
