A group of birders train their lenses on a scissor-tailed Flycatcher

It’s true that early birders get the best view. The Key West Tropical Forest & Botanical Garden has been the recent home of a Bahama Mockingbird and it’s causing quite a stir in the birding community. The bird has been sighted in the Garden on three of the last four days. The Garden has been opening early to accommodate birders and many have taken advantage of this opportunity to roam the Garden at first light.
