Major run-on sentence:
After yesterday's fine T.A.S. birdwalk at A.D. Barnes Park in South
Miami, which yielded 18 species of warblers, both tanagers, both
buntings, Spot-breasted Oriole, Rose-breasted Grosbeak and others, I went
down to Castellow Hammock County Park in Homestead, where, despite the
constant rains, the Rufous Hummingbird pair, first reported by Roger
Hammer on October 17th, were still visiting the firebush (red tubular
flowers) and the necklace-pod (long spikes of yellow pea flowers) north
of the nature center building. Sit on the picnic table under the oak for
the best vantage point. The park is located at 22301 SW 162 Avenue in
Homestead and directions to it can be found on page 229 of Pranty's book.
Other birds present there were several Ruby-throated Hummingbirds, 13
White-winged Doves, 1 Yellow-billed Cuckoo, one Northern Parula and a
group of gnatcatchers.
For the complete rundown on the birdwalk A.D. Barnes, go to the TAS Miami
Bird Board website at http://tropicalaudubon.org/tasboard/index.html and
scroll down to the October 21st date.
