Sanibel's Snowy Plover 2013 Nesting Season

Sanibel's Snowy Plover nesting season officially began Feb 15.  These tiny shore birds are endangered and everyone going to our beaches, should take the time to read rules that will help protect them.  These birds are so small that you have to look carefully or you will not see them.  Rules and information, along with photos can be found on Sanibel Captiva Conservation Foundation  website.

Hope that they are still around when we arrive on Sanibel in a few weeks, Tootie! Are they the ones that scamper along the shoreline so quickly? Hope you are doing well and are enjoying the change of seasons! :)
