A huge thanks to the woman at Fort De Soto who told me there were grosbeaks and tanagers at the administration building! There is a fig tree at the end of the parking lot with lots of fruit. That’s where the hungry migrants are! They are pigging out on figs. I spend a good half hour staring up into the branches. I end up with a Cape May Warbler, Rose-breasted Grosbeak (male and female), Scarlet Tanager, Summer Tanager, Gray Catbirds, and Indigo Bunting. Not bad!
