“On The Road”

Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Disney Hollywood Studio

Well I’m back from my whirl-wind trip to the Magic Kingdom, Epcot, and Disney’s Hollywood Studios. We all had an excellent time, even in the blazin’ heat, and afternoon showers. I’m not going to bore you with the details of the trip, or show a lot of vacation pictures. This blog wasn’t to be used that way. However, like I said in my previous post when I told you that I was going to Disney World, I was going to bird watch. Binoculars and field guide were going into my pack, because that’s what I do. And it paid off with 4 new life birds.

Even though this wasn’t a birding vacation, so to speak, these sightings were viewed either while I was traveling back and forth in some mode of transportation, or at one of the theme parks.
