A few days ago Jeff and I went shelling and birding near the Lighthouse on Sanibel Island.
We arrived around 7:30 and there were already many people out looking for treasures.
It was low tide and the Skimmer, Terns and other shorebirds were lined up on the sand bars.
Fort Myers in the distance.
Most people were walking the beach and shelling
while I take photos and look for shells.
Most people were respectful of the birds and distanced themselves as they walked past them.
Mostly Sanderlings ..
This fella in blue is a local and know the shells and what to look for.
Live shell and shell seekers.
Will I find any shells?
We did see a good amount of birds..
Skimmers take flight
The birding scene in video..
Royal and Fosters Tern?
We had a super morning…shelling, walking the beach and birding. Jeff and I don’t really care to sunbathe..but those beach chairs sure did look inviting!
Oh.and We did find shells!
This is actually two days worth..
Some collected on Captiva Island
Cant wait to go out again and find more!
