It is not just the variety of birds that live on the island that make it so special, but the sheer numbers of birds that are present every where that makes bird watching so easy.

The Ding Darling Nature preserve is a great place to see almost all the birds that call Sanibel home, but they can be seen in every day activities as well.The sandpipers run freely along the water’s edge on most parts of the Island, and especially so on Bowman’s Beach.Any body of fresh water with a low level will attract the gorgeous spoonbills with their pink finery.… continue reading

Sometimes one of them will scream, but they don’t carry on all the time like crows, for example. They are smaller than redtails, but I can’t determine the species (and no, they’re not buzzards).… continue reading

It seems that I have some type of a bird that is stuck in my wood fireplace. It is not in the duct, I looked with a flash light and I can see all the way till the other side of the chimney. It is all clean until there. From the sound it seems that the bird is between the duct and the the wall. I can hear it very close, scratching and pecking inside.
