On the boardwalk we spotted a Palm Warbler, a blue heron and a great egret landed on the railing nearby. We also saw ibis, yellow crown night herons, anhingas, and ospreys.
Our best sighting was a black crowned night heron out in the open on roots of the cypress trees. He was a very large bird and this heron is not often seen in the open,but mostly tucked away in the shurbs.
After more than 2 hours in the slough, we headed to Publix to shop. We must have been hungry because we bought a lot. Stopped at Wings, store in Sanibel, to find croakies for Al's new sunglasses. Arrived back at the house about 5:00 both tired from the day.
Made an easy dinner of fresh made sushi-salmon and tuna sushi and salmon rolls- purchased at Publix and a PF Chang dinner of Shanghai style beef with red peppers and green beans served with rice. These frozen dinners are very good and only take a few minutes to prepare. We enjoyed dessert of Italian Wedding cake from Publix bakery....very good!
