Fort Lauderdale

Bird-Watching

Evergreen Historic Cemetery. North of Fort Lauderdale's 17th Street Causeway, amid a Gothic setting, lies an avid bird-watchers' haven. The circa 1879 graveyard, shaded by gumbo limbo and strangler figs, doubles as a place of fleeting repose for Bahama mockingbirds and other species winging through urban Broward. Warblers are big here, and there are occasional sightings of red-eyed vireos, northern waterthrushes, and scarlet tanagers. 1300 S.E. 10th Ave., Intracoastal and Inland, Fort Lauderdale, FL, 33315. 954/745–2140. www.browardcemeteries.com.
