February 16, 2008 - Sanibel Island and Ding Darling NWR, Part 2

We started the wildlife drive, which costs $5 or an America the Beautiful pass, which we have.  Quickly we came to a place with birds, including this brown pelican.

This Yellow-crowned Night Heron was right by the side of the road.

Just up from the night heron was this photogenic Little Blue Heron:

A brown anole lizard, an invader species.

Roseate Spoonbills in the trees:

Double-breasted cormorants and gulls.

Another pied-billed grebe.

A snowy egret in breeding plumage with the cormorants and gulls:

A horseshoe crab shell in the water.

Walking back we got another nice photo of the Little Blue Heron.

Lots of white pelicans plus white ibis, egrets and other birds:
