How many is to many?


   

 The Roseate Spoonbills are a site to see all dressed up in pink, and herons galore. Are they not gorgeous? 

 

    The White Pelicans come in at low tide by the hundreds. The little guy on the right is a Night Heron.

 

     Feathered friends everywhere you look on the island, even woodstorks (below) in the ditches on the side of the road. Maybe they don't have the cutest face you've ever seen but they are the only storks found naturally in North America.

 

     Ok, maybe this was enough feathers for one blog, I'll stop now. But ... there are so many other things besides birds on Sanibel.

These birds were worth the dialup wait!

I need to do something while I wait for things to load until I get my high speed cable-capable computer back. Maybe I can read War and Peace during download times.
