Several interesting birds have made an appearance in Sanibel this past week - One Brant was seen and photographed along the Wildlife Drive by one person. A Hermit Thrush was reported at the Sanibel Garden preserve, I've made three separate attempt to locate it, unfortunately it lived up to its name for my sake. And then, yesterday, a Long-tailed Duck was photographed off Colon's Point at Ding Darling. I figured three's the charm and hoped to see a new bird - so off I go.....
|It was in the early morning hours and the tide was low - a perfect combo for a drive along Ding Darling. The first pond provided great views of the Yellow-crowned Night Herons.|
|At the Mangrove Overlook -hundreds of white birds could be seen in the distance.|
|And so were the White Pelicans, we are glad they are back.|
|The White Ibis were in great numbers as were....|
|the Snowy Egrets.|
