Sanibel beach walk~Birds and shells

Howdee all,

I am interrupting my search for the Marbled Godwit post to exclaim…

We are in Sanibel!

Land of shells and birds.

Jeff and I took a late afternoon beach walk.

It was windy and chilly on the beach.

Sanibel_007Hang out with the birds and shells


Cant get much better than Birds and Shells…


Walking on the beach..


I will be looking for some treasures..


Sicksta Lori said I need to look for Junonia shells.

Here is a link to some other shells I will be looking for.


I need to research where the best shells are and when to find them.


Oh look….


Ibis fishing the surf..


I watched them….wondering what they were eating..







It looks like it has a sand shrimp….


I am sorry if you are bored of Ibis..


Because this is not the last photo..


We had a great walk…we are only a half a mile walk to the beach from where we are staying.

Sanibel_036We are also a half mile walk to Ding Darling NWR..

More to explore!

And this is the last Ibis~for today .. Smile

That's pretty rough surf for the gulf. It was as calm as could be when we were there years ago. The ibis are cool birds

I am loving your posts from Florida. I really want to be there. Love your ibis photos! :-)

Great shots from a great walk on the beach. I'd be in trouble with all those shells for the taking.

Ahhh, I love Sanibel Island. Thanks for the walk down memory lane. It reminds me I have to get back there one of these days.

hi dawnie. love the skimmers. they rock.
I asked what sort of Ibis they were but did not look hard enough. they are white ibis. we have the ugliest ibis in oz.

What a wonderful spot. Super photos and I admit to a bit of jealousy, all that sun and those birds. Enjoy it guys.

Looks glorious! I could spend the entire day on that beautiful beach. Hope you find some pretty shells. I know the Sanibel beaches are known for all the gorgeous treasures that wash up on shore.

the ibis at Sanibel when I was there were eating sand fleas... and in one of your photos I am pretty sure that the ibis was also eating a sand flea...
