Preceeding the Snowbirds

 A quick non-real estate related post. We have a few  magnificent frigatebirds that summer somewhere at the Cape and are often seen in the summer months flying high above the Canaveral Bight, almost never more than two at a sighting. Yesterday the sky along the ocean shore in Cocoa Beach was a steady stream of these giant birds heading south. Frigates summer as far north as North Carolina so I imagine the dozens that I saw during lunch were northern-summering birds whose southward migration was triggered en masse by the approaching severe cold front. Whatever the reason, it was very cool to see this unusual sight in Cocoa Beach.
