Walt Winton reports a female Redstart at Six Mile Cypress Slough Preserve on 30
Bev Postmus reported a Piping Plover at Little Estero Lagoon, Ft Myers Beach 26
July, and it was still present this AM (31 July), seen by Walt Winton, Wes
Dirks, and myself. It was seen in a small tidal pool just beyond the beach
access at the Holiday Inn. Bev saw it out on the mudflats in the area of the
lagoon where there is two small piers.
Good numbers of shorebirds are present, many still in their breeding colors.
American Oystercatcher numbers remain impressive at 20, but they are not always
present. I went out Saturday and saw only three. The numbers during visits in
July have been: 30-50-12-3-20. This was great to see!
