I recently took a friend to Fort Mose Historic State Park and came upon a palm warbler feeding among the mangroves in the saltmarsh. We saw other birds like osprey, great blue herons, and little blue herons. The palm warbler was my best photographic catch. Palm warblers have yellow feathers under their tail and can be seen bobbing their tail constantly. They spend a lot of time on the ground which is unusual for warblers.
