While in Fort Meyers area Jeff and I birded Bunche Beach.
These photos were take over several visits to Bunche Beach.
If you want to Bird Bunche..make sure you go low tide.
Most days you will find other birders as well as birds
Oh look at the photo below ..Cute Hubby, Handsome boy and Pretty Girl
Angel and Mariel Abreu of Badbirdz join us for a morning at Bunche.
If you don’t follow Badbirdz migration radar already you should~its that time of year.
Little Blue and Tri-colored Heron
An Osprey flies in..
It had its eyes on a very large fish in one of the shallow pools of water
It tries several times but ends up dragging the fish to the shore and eating it there.
Dunlin and Red Knot
The Red Knots breeding plumage starting to turn reddish..
Skimmers and Terns in the distance take to the air..
We notice a Bald Eagle fly thru.
If you come at low tide there are always plenty of peeps to look thru.
Short-billed Dowitcher and Black-bellied plover
I found many of these little sand sculptures…
they are hollow..with a hole on the top.
Anyone know what critter makes this?
We leave the flats and walk back to the beach..
