Birding in Airports

Airport House Sparrows

On a business trip yesterday, I was walking into the JFK terminal and a House Sparrow practically hit me in the head.  Over my 2 hour layover I saw dozens of them patiently sitting in the rafters waiting for french fries to fall from traveler’s laps.

Amazing how the House Sparrow (an invasive species) from Europe has adopted so well to living with humans.

When I got to my final destination – Tampa, I saw two Cattle Egrets from the Rental Car Shuttle.  Bird Species #303 for the year!!!
