For the Birders

Ding Darling

In “Ding” Darling’s Bailey Tract and along Wildlife Drive, morning matters. It’s a silent, sacred time in the refuge when the enclave of birds feasts on their best meal of the day. Small fish, insects and other small prey make for a healthy start to their day.

Photographer Mike Dougherty shares his 3.5 minute video documenting the beauty of the birds on Sanibel. It’s a birder’s delight. Watch and enjoy!
