Recently returned from a trip around (down the west side and back up on the east) the El Cielo region of southern Tamps.  A list of what was seen/heard follows.  We targeted the Military Macaw and other "tropicals" and did not spend much time ticking off the NA migrants and winter visitors.  Otherwise, our list would be longer.  Still, it is respectable.
