My Sightings

Date Location Note
Fort DeSoto ParkHidden in the trees near the fountain
Fort De Soto ParkA beautiful male in full plumage eating from a mulberry bush in the oak tree area. Was attracting a lot of attention
Lake SaundraEating from a birdfeeder, all brown. I think that means it is a female. Large, heavy bird compared to warblers and finches.
George McGough Park@ George McGough park, very excited about this one. I think it was an immature male, it had visible rosy color on its chest but it was not as bold as a breeding male. Quite large, almost dove sized. Not present in Florida for most of the year.
