July 22, 2017. Headed out to Fort DeSoto this morning to check out the bird activity and storms, which were in the Gulf heading toward shore. When the RADAR is littered with storms, I am waiting on the beach. Today, I opted to do two things, photograph the storms from Fort De Soto Bird Sanctuary, and talk to the bird steward so I could catch up on the bird nesting news.
Florida Audubon oversees the Bird Stewarding program. You can volunteer to be a bird steward and help protect shorebird colonies. For more information and to inquire about being a volunteer, visit the bird steward web page.
