BIRD PATROL REPORT

On Saturday March 2nd, Lee County Bird Patrol volunteer Marie Di Rosa reported:

We had a wonderful group of birders this morning for the Bird Patrol led walk at Lakes Park. Thank you to all of those sharp eagle eyes that joined me! The Morning Meander at Lakes Regional Park yielded some great looks at the Least Bittern that has been rather reliable in the clump of cattails behind the concession stand. I’m looking forward to seeing the photos that were taken… We also managed to spot one of the three limpkins that have been living in the park… For directions and other tour listings, visit the Bird Patrol web site at http://www.birdpatrol.org . 

PHOTOS of the Least Bittern were provided by JANET KIRK – thank you!
