Tufted Titmouse singing long and loud, but not the usual call heard around feeders this is the call of the deep forest and this bird is hard to find - finally got a glimpse at the end!

I'm trying to eat breakfast - I think they are trying to tell me they want their peanuts now! These are Florida Gray's and when it comes to peanuts they are very serious.

Gray Catbird singing like a Mockingbird. Catbirds, Mockingbirds and Thrashers are all mimics although the Catbird is more typically heard making their cat-like mewing call.

No these are harmless Crane Flies, very large and look like mosquitoes, but not! Sometimes called Mosquito Hawks or Skeeter Eaters as they are rumored to eat mosquitoes, but they don't consume mosquitoes at all
