Migratory birds in the Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge

Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge


Although we are in the midst of winter in the Northeast, I thought I’d share photos of our trip to Florida on our honeymoon in October 2005.

This is Sanibel Island.  The J.N. Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge.  President Harry S. Truman signed an Executive Order in 1945 to preserve this place.
If you double click with the left side of mouse, you can enlarge the photo.  You will see all the migratory birds.  Can anyone name these birds for me?
An important note:
All of these photos are my personal images, you must request permission to upload them for your use.

      The Sculptor/ artist is J. Seward Johnson. He has a workshop at the Grounds for Sculpture in Hamilton N.J. There is a huge sculpture there called “Were you invited” and was created to look like the painting “The Luncheon of the Boating Party”. While traveling in Vermont, I read that J.Seward’s sculptures were around the town of Bennington for a limited time and I’m glad we stooped there to pose.
      My husband makes me laugh when he thinks up a pose, so clever.
