Sanibel Lighthouse floodgates
- One feature I love at Lighthouse Park is the migratory procession. As soon as it is light enough to see the migrant stream flows overhead with that old familiar feeling of time in pure natural motion. Dominated by 1,000s of Palm Warblers we frequently pick out the call of another of the 37 or so other possible warbler species heh,heh. Today was thrilling, a Purple Martin, some Barn and Cliff Swallows and a FOS Tree Swallow, Gnatcatchers, calls of buntings, a couple Baltimore Orioles. Our big treat was a Western Kingbird
The woods revealed our FOS Catbird(2), W-e Vireo
On the beach our FOS Ring-billed Gull
Off to town to rescue a Cooper's Hawk with success. On the way home a dark Short-tailed Hawk circling over McGregor Blvd at John Morris Rd
Finally pun intended I found a wet field on the SE corner of Sandy Ln and Corkscrew Rd full of waders and shorebirds, gonna check tomorrow.
