June Birds

The month of June is pretty much the slowest time of the year to look for birds in south Florida. To try to spice things up several enterprising birders started the June Challenge.  I'm not officially participating, but I did manage to find one hundred birds in Lee County.  Soon migration will slowly see a trickle of shore birds back to our waters from breeding in the arctic and this will kick-off our fall migration experience

I've added a few photos of some of the birds seen here this past month. .
