Photographed in Mead Garden, Winter Park, Florida on August 21, 2009. These birds are almost always seen in the highest part of trees. I was really fortunate these birds decided to look for food on some of the lower limbs.

Whatbird: Breeds from Manitoba, Minnesota, Ontario, and central New England south to Gulf Coast states. Spends winters in tropics, with a few in southern Florida. Inhabits live oak hammocks, mature pine forests, or mixed turkey oak and pine woodlands. Also occurs in cypress swamps or mixed forests along rivers. Sometimes found in residential areas with mature trees. Their numbers have decreased in recent years because of the spraying of trees with toxic chemicals.
