We arrived about 7:30 AM and met up some folks from Tampa who had just seen the Western Spindalis and the flock of Spot-breasted Orioles it has been associating with. So we were on the watch for the orioles as the spindalis should be close at hand. And this plan worked.
The Orioles were putting on quite a show and the Western Spinalis did show up several times for the many birders assembled near the butterfly garden enjoyment. Its skulky manners made photograph difficult, but not so with the orioles.
A few other nice birds seen here included a beautiful Cape May Warbler, a female Ruby-throated Hummingbird and several fly-over Monk Parakeets. A nice trip
