Well, it works out with my exam schedule to go to Orlando for a few days. Targets are obviously FSJA and LIMP, but probably also WIPL, PRWA, the whistling ducks and some other stuff like that. This trip is increasing my goal to 500 species worldwide by the end of the year. It's not impossible if I get just under 30 new in Florida (unlikely, but attainable) and about 150 new in Mexico, then I'm in pretty good shape! Also, I'm at 34 species for the year, not bad in Ontario with the weather we've been having. Highest temp. I've seen in a while was -9*C, and lowest was -28*C.

Ha, I wish. 

Also on a side note, I've been made coordinator for one of the biggest CBCs in the province! Now I have to be in charge of 120+ volunteers. Fun.

February 1-4, so all day first, second and third. I'm staying near celebration (SW of Orlando). I have fairly little birding time, so the whole trip is gonna be torture. I will probably go to Apopka and a Scrub Jay spot, and probably one of the coasts. There's so many places I want to go for so many birds,you guys have so many...

No, what time? 

Oh! I get out whenever I finish which is generally 3 or 4. Immediately after which I do piano practice and guitar practice if I have time left over.

I get out at 2:25

The schools around here get out about 3:15.  But, luckily, I'm homescholled so I get out whenever I'm done.  And, technically all my schoolwork is my homework.   Anyone else homeschooled?  @Melierax, I know you're homeschooled. ^_^

I know Sean is, and Short-eared Owl, (he's in Norway though so he isn't on much). Kadynn is too but he has work and school so he isn't on much either.
