All,

The Bahama Mockingbird was seen again at 1:30 PM today (5/7). It flew from the Green Buttonwood tree marked by Larry, across the path to Sea Grape tangle. It remained ~7 feet off the ground and was seen well. It did not vocalize.

Directions: Cape Florida Bill Baggs State Park is the south end of Key Biscayne. Take the Rickenbacker Causeway ($1.25) from the south end of I-95. Go through Virginia Key 
(home of the Seaquarium) to Key Biscayne. Continue on the main road through the village of Key Biscayne until you reach the park. After entering (fee), continue south on main road to Area C. [Do not continue to Area D.] Park as far south as possible in Area C, then walk ~5 yards south to entrance of Nature Trail (sign) on the west. The buttonwood tree is ~200 feet farther along the dirt trail. A restricted access service road forks to the right off the Nature Trail and is well marked. There are several fruiting Strangler Fig trees in the area so these should also be checked.
