|Small Gopher Tortoise at Sanibel Lighthouse|
Vince McGrath posted on Birdbrains about finding several interesting migrants at Sanibel Lighthouse. I could not get there till the following afternoon and did not know what to expect. I was only able to locate a single warbler, a beautiful male Magnolia Warbler. He was located several times in the area of the beach parking lot near to the owl tree. Other sightings included several Red-eyed Vireos, a trio of Eastern Kingbirds, and my first sighting of year of a Yellow-billed Cuckoo. A Bank Swallow was seen as I was leaving the island. Lots of colorful butterflies and the a small gopher tortoise too.
