  • An additional 7-acre area of beach near Sunset House North Condominiums, which is on Seaview Court, was marked off to protect currently nesting black skimmers and least terns.
  • The Black Skimmer catches a small fish while fishing/skimming the waters around Marco Island.  Because of their speed and agility I was very fortunate to capture this photograph.
  • Signs posted on Marco beaches warn visitors of currently nesting shorebirds.
  • A least tern wooden decoy sits in the sand on Marco Island's Sand Dollar Island while Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation Commission biologists Tiffany Snow, coordinator Ricardo Zambrano and Lindsay Nester confer.
  • The annual initiative on Keewaydin Island is all about this little fella, a Wilson's plover, plus snowy plovers and particularly least terns, which are endangered species.
