Breakfast with birds at Collier County’s Tigertail Beach on Marco Island might conjure up a huddled group of diners deluged by hovering, cawing seagulls. On Saturday, nothing was further from the truth. Those attending “Breakfast and Birds” munched muffins and doughnuts on wooden benches in the park’s rustic and sheltered pavilion. Organizers from the Friends of Tigertail urged participants to BYOB (bring your own breakfast). The meal was followed by an education session and a stroll along Tigertail’s lagoon.
