Little Estero Island Critical Wildlife Area

Snowy Plovers on Ft. Meyers Beach.

Snowy Plovers on Ft. Meyers Beach.


This morning I birded the above area on Ft. Meyers Beach. This is always a hot spot and I can get some good birds there. Once again, it proves to be quite different in the spring than the fall. The highlight of the area today were 400 breeding Least Terns. I think the area set aside for them is about ten acres. Also present are breeding Wilson’s and Snowy Plovers. The waders also put on quite a show with all the regulars occurring. The highlight there were 12 Reddish Egrets, all the red variety. A breeding plumage Little Blue Heron is quite a sight. Magnificent Frigatebirds soared overhead. I nice four mile walk with lots of birds!
