      This is Brian Ahern reporting the Florida Rare Bird Alert for
      03/02/03. This report is sponsored by FLORIDA NATURE TOURS, which
      offers tours to the Dry Tortugas, South Florida, private guiding and
      a special Pelagic Trip off of Ponce Inlet on May 17th. For
      information go to http://www.floridanaturetours.com or call 407-363-
      1360. Reports are followed by coordinates from the DeLorme Florida
      Atlas & Gazetteer and the page number of Bill Pranty's ABA guide "A
      Birder's Guide to Florida" when possible.

      Two CALLIOPE HUMMINGBIRDS are visiting the feeders at Fran C.
      Rutkovsky home in Tallahassee. If interested in viewing them please
      contact her at 850-422-3636 or prutkov@...

      The EURASIAN KESTREL at Lake Apopka Restoration Area, which is
      northwest of Orlando has been seen on a daily basis since last
      Wednesday 26th. It is in a restricted area but birders will continue
      to be allowed in. As long as the bird is on their property the St.
      Johns River Water Mgt. District will make every effort possible to
      get birders in to see it. The same routine used in the past few days
      will be in place at least through this coming weekend, Sunday March
      9th. 2003. Harold Weatherman (possibly another SJRWMD employee next
      weekend), will be at the Lust Rd. gate at 8:30 AM to guide people to
      the bird. If the bird is still there after the 9th. either the same
      schedule will continue or some modified version. Please meet promptly
      at 8:30am at the gate at the end of Lust Road. Directions: From 441
      (Orange Blossom Trail) in Apopka turn south onto SR-437. Follow SR-
      437 for several miles and Lust Rd will be on your right. If you reach
      Magnolia Park you have gone too far! Follow Lust Rd. all the way to
      where it ends at the gate and make sure to be there by 9am. Pending
      acceptance this represents a first state record and only one of a
      dozen or so for the U.S.! (H. Robinson & all). DeLorme p. 79

      The next RBA will be on March 7th unless the situation changes.

      Good Birding!
