Also at Ding Darling NWR Sanibel Sun. 4/22
- From about 9:30am to 10:30am Sunday morning, my wife, son and I saw along Wildlife Drive several pair of Indigo Bunting, two male Baltimore Orioles, two Spotted Sandpiper and a very odd looking thrush, with quite gray face and hindquarters. Earlier that morning, at our home about a half mile south of Ding Darling, we had a male Painted Bunting in one of our tomato bushes and, from the sound, a mate in nearby trees. Both Yellow-Crowned and Black-Crowned Night Heron's at the edge of our small pond when we returned from Ding.

Charlie Ewell, Jose Padilla and I are birding Ding Darling in between rain showers. We've had Swainson's and Gray-cheeked thrushes on the road, literally, and Eastern pewee, Dickcissel, and Bank swallow. Some warblers were flying over. Next stop, Sanibel Lighthouse!
