Just a quick update for those thinking of traveling
for the female MacGillivray's Warbler at Tree Tops
County Park in Broward. The bird is still present in
the same area as previously reported. On Sunday 30th,
between 10.45am and 11.30am it was feeding in the
brush
piles on the left as you enter the clearing. On one
occasion it ventured into the bordering vegetation 6
feet off the ground, giving excellent views. To locate
the MacGillivray's listen for it's distinctive,
repeated "tsik" call (sharper than that of Common
Yellowthroat and likened to a twig snapping). Pishing
appears to be counter productive with the bird going
silent for very long periods. So patience is the name
of the game! Common Yellowthroats, Indigo and Painted
Buntings are in the same area.
