These individuals are getting their breeding/summer plumage before they return north to their breeding season.  Palm warblers are the most common warblers in Miami and the Keys. They can be seen everywhere, in the city and in the natural areas.

This banaquit tried to make a nest in the grass-woven light cover. I do not know what he was thinking because the nest would get quite hot at night. It only came during the day to build the nest, so it probably never realized this major problem.
banaquit, Itacaré, Bahia, Brazil, 2008.

This little pest stayed around the breakfast table, and the waiters at the bed and breakfast had to keep on their toes to keep him away from the fruit. Several times it successfully ate papaya.
