Bird Watching at Pelican Bay

Pelican Bay is a bird sanctuary.  According to the “Clam Bay Field Guide” (which I can supply or you can pick up at The Commons office at Pelican Bay), the following species are counted as resident or snowbirds (the real kind) of Pelican Bay grounds:

It's interesting that I clicked over here Marcia...

This morning a bird (the ones that go under water) was searching for food in the canal behind our house and lo and behold, a big ole' gator snatched that birdee right up.

This is the same gator that keeps eyeballing my dog. No. I don't leave the dog out :)

Patricia, Amazing but true. I love to see the pelicans doing a low cruise over the water on my morning walk! 

TLW, Oh, oh, "Fluffy" better stay inside.  I had a freind visiting me from up North and as we walked along the berm behind my building he kept hearing "frogs" croaking.  I said, "honey, those are not frogs !  It's a jungle out there. :)

Pat, Yeah, I feel very blessed!

People of all ages love watching birds nibble on their backyard bird feeders. It is relaxing and an interesting hobby. Every home should have at least one bird feeder in its yard!

Unfortunately Pelican Bay is private for owners but you can go to 
Vanderbilt Beach which is just at the North end of Pelican Bay and it has public access and you can walk down the beach.  Lots of fun eating places around there.  Enjoy!  Marcia
