In Their Words: “Last winter, a friend down here in Siesta Key said, ‘Every day now, a thousand people move to Florida. A THOUSAND.’ And from what I can tell, that number is about right or might even be too low. As a songwriter, there’s facts and then there’s the stories behind the facts, and I started thinking about the people I know who have moved here, how they left other places behind, other versions of themselves behind. The title came from guidebooks you’ll find in almost every household in the state, these full-color guides to birds. And though you may see occasional guides to The Snakes of Florida, that concept didn’t sound quite worthy of a song, or it’d be a very different song, for sure.” — Susan Werner
