|Silja and the Key West Chicken, the most established introduced exotic in North America from pre-1800|
We drove past a block-long line for a picture at the southernmost point of the US, apparently it was the place to be with three hundred people loitering in line to do so, but seemed insane to me. I was going to take a picture of the process to highlight the absurdity of it all but that would only give credence to something that needs to be purged.
Victor was a good guide and a nice guy. It was lucky to have found him by chance. I’d recommend him for any birding in the area. I didn’t bring up the fact I am a naked birder. I figure it would get lost in the translation. Maybe I could have added a few birds to my lifetime naked list, but I was just happy to do my own thing for a day and avoid the cruise ship outings.
