Russell Macgregor found a Bahama Mockingbird at John U. Lloyd State Park
in Dania, Fla. at 5:45 this evening. He called me from the park and I was
to observe the bird for a few minutes around 6:30.
Exit I-95 at Stirling Rd. (in Dania) which is located in central Broward Co.
Go east on Stirling to US #1 (Federal Hwy) and then go north for 2-3 blocks
to Dania Beach Blvd. Go east on Dania Beach Blvd. and follow signs to the
Enter the paved parking lot which is located 1/2 mile north of the entrance
Park at the south end of the parking lot and walk south onto the unpaved
of the lot. There is a gray sign providing information on life guards,
alcohol, pets, etc. Just south of that sign is a large fruiting Ficus tree.
Russell observed the bird feeding in that tree and also on the ground
beneath that tree. It also perched for a short time in a small tree
about 25 ft. south of the large Ficus. We last
saw the bird about 6:35 when it flew back into the Ficus tree.
