Fide Naples birder Alan Murray, a Dickcissel was found among a flock of
House Sparrows at the "posh" intersection of Third Street South and 13th
Avenue in downtown Naples yesterday, 03/04/03. The bird frequents the
southwest corner of this intersection near Tony's on Third (restaurant)
and the immediate surrounding area.
This morning, I spent an hour or so there looking for the bird under the
curious eyes of oogling alfresco diners. Alas, I could not find the
Dickcissel but that doesn't mean that it isn't somewhere in the area. If
anyone finds it, please post about it. Afterwards, I made a brief stop at
Eagle Lakes Community Park, entering from the Whistler's Cove Apartments.
Both Eurasian Wigeons were easily found among the dozen or so AMWI.
