Gray catbird eating flowers (1 Viewer)

More than a couple of times I have seen what I am pretty sure is gray catbirds eating flowers with my binoculars (pusley flowers, known better as Florida snow). I don't think they were eating any insects on them but just the flowers themselves. Do catbirds normally eat flowers? I can't find anywhere that they would be part of their diet.

The other day a catbird was eating my begonia flowers not the bugs off them.....the whole flower! I am in north central Florida.

Funny I came on to ask almost the same question. I live in central Florida and have a male and female Cardinals in my backyard that decided to tear all the flowers off of our honeysuckle the other day..
