Spring Time at the Beach

Saturday March 25th

Sunrise at Bunche Beach

A sunrise visit to Bunche Beach today to see what's new. Noticing that the shore birds are beginning to molt into their spring-time colors. Mostly we see these winter visitors in there most mundane off-season coloration. They seem to be just getting started. But it won't be long till they reach there breeding molt and head for the arctic or sub-arctic nesting sites.

  1. Wow, thanks for posting all of these photos! We moved to Fort Myers Beach a year ago and I have recently started to use binoculars to really look at these interesting birds. We live 3 miles from Bunche Beach, maybe I will go early so I maybe can catch the beautiful ones you have. I look forward to reading the rest of this blog!
