Monday (25-December-2017) — Florida

Gone to See Florida 2017/2018 Road Trip. Day 5: Urban Garden in St. Petersburg.

This was the first time I have seen a Black & White Warbler. It never stayed in one place very long, so was hard to get an image. Many House Sparrows and an orange butterfly (Gulf Fritillary?). Then some fruit — Bananas still on the tree, a Carambola, Figs, and a green lemon.
