The threatened Florida Scrub-Jay was among my new encounters, a curious and friendly bird in the Corvid family, found in a very specific scrub habitat, a habitat also favored by humans and rapidly disappearing.
Fortunately, Brevard County Florida has a group of alert stewards in an organization called the Environmentally Endangered Lands Program (EEL). This organization has preserved a network of endangered lands for the benefit of everyone, especially the threatened wildlife that are dependent upon these habitats. It was on one of these land sanctuaries that I met the curious and delightful Scrub-Jay.
