Sanibel Lighthouse 20 Apr 2002
Things are still fairly quiet at Sanibel Lighthouse migration wise, but one or
two sightings of note for the location.
Red-shouldered Hawk: this cooperative adult was clearly a northern bird, as it
was quite dark through the head and back. Most likely a male as the small
appearance suggested Broad-winged Hawk at first glance. The red on the shoulder
area was clearly seen.
Red-headed Woodpecker: while I'm sure others have occurred, this adult was my
third at this location during both the spring and fall migrations over the past
Hairy Woodpecker: this was my first ever at the lighthouse.
Cape May Warbler
I was told Vince McGrath had reported quite a few warblers during an evening
visit Friday (19 Apr).
