Wild birds at Suncoast Seabird Sanctuary

Great blue herons have a nest.

American oystercatcher out on the beach with a snack.

Great egret.

Baby wild pelican that is growing up at the sanctuary. Mom was probably an offspring of a permanent resident that was set free and comes back to have her babies on the property.

Wild pelican on the beach. He kept holding up his wing but he looked alright.

A lot of wild birds seem to hang out at the sanctuary. I guess they come to visit their injured friends. I just read on Facebook that the sanctuary had now sent people to help out with the oiled birds in the panhandle. They are going to be very busy there and here. Check them out if you are on Facebook.

  1. The Great Blue Heron is a majestical species that speaks of Florida almost better than other other bird that roams the Florida skys.
