Sanibel Island, Take 2

One more trip around Ding Darling. This time right at dawn. A few more birds, including Spoonbills, but still not a huge amount of anything. Was hoping to find a Mangrove Cuckoo but no luck.

Nearing the backstretch, I did find a rather comfy looking Brown Pelican.

Decided to take a trail we passed yesterday in hopes of some Vireos but they were not to be found. Many Common Ground Doves were wandering about, though.

At the far end of the trail was a lone Tri-colored Heron fishing. On the way back, all I could manage was a rabbit.


On the way home, we swung into Ponce DeLeon Park at Punta Gorda. The bird guides listed Cuckoos as being here, too, but we only found more pelicans and a cooperative Green Heron.
