Florida
Summary and Stats
 
Shortly before I left, I received an issue of a birding magazine containing a birdfinding guide for the Bahamas.  I decided at the last minute that since I would be in West Palm Beach, and so close to the Abaco, I could just pop over for a couple of days.  That would certainly prove interesting...
