A young least tern rests a three-acre sandbar off Cape Romano on June 30, 2011. The sandbar is considered to be one of the largest least tern nesting areas in Florida, home to about 800 birds during the height of the nesting season. The sand bar is checked every week by environmental specialists from Rookery Bay to monitor the status of the coastal bird's colony. Greg Kahn/Staff
