Four! Thousand! Peregrines!

 

The folks at the Florida Keys Hawkwatch at Curry Hammock State Park just hit a season count of 4,000 Peregrine Falcons for this season – more than have ever been seen during a single season anywhere else in the world.

Congratulation to Rafael Glavez, who runs the project (and saved it from the ash heap of data collection a few years ago). Also congratulations to Kerry Ross and Rachel Smith, who were the full time counters this year and some very fun folks to hang around with.

I did a piece on the count and the Peregrine Migration for WLRN, the public radio station in Miami, which you can read and/or listen here:

Zombie Bike Ride 2013

Hedden Zombie Ride1426 sm2 I love the fact that the Zombie Bike Ride has become the locals favorite event for (unofficial) Fantasy Fest. The crowds were so big that it took almost a half hour to get across Cow Key Bridge. But then again, who expects zombies to be organized?

Key Westers get very creative given half a chance.

I did a small piece for WLRN, the public radio station in Miami, which you can read and/or listen to here.

A few of my photos made it onto the webpage, but there a lot more in the gallery below.

If you share any of the photos, I would appreciate being credited.
