  • SWEET SHOTS FROM THE SANCTUARY GC: Gaillardia

    Gaillardia, also known as Blanket Flower, is a native perennial that blooms throughout the summer and well into the fall. Often, it can be seen blooming year round in bright sun areas that are protected from our cool northern winds.

  • SWEET SHOTS FROM SANCTUARY GC: Great Crested Flycatcher

    The Great-crested Flycatcher is a cavity nester that is often more easily heard than seen, with rolling calls echoing through the woods. It's often found in more open wooded areas and around the edges of clearings. This member of the Tyrant Flycatcher family can be found year-round in Southern Florida.

  • SWEETS SHOTS FROM SANCTUARY GC: Snowy Egret

    The Snowy Egret is a beautiful, small, graceful egret known for it's contrasting yellow feet. Following great reductions in numbers in the early 1900's due to the plume trade, protection of the bird brought back the population and it is now more widespread and common than ever.

  • SWEET SHOTS FROM THE SANCTUARY GC: Black Racer

    The Black Racer, also known as the Southern Black Racer, is a common species of snake found all around the southern regions of the United States. They are non-venomous and are basically timid by nature and virtually harmless, if not attacked or threatened. During the winter months, they often bask in the sunshine in open spaces, including warm asphalt roads, and are much more visible than in the warmer summer months.

  • SWEET SHOTS FROM THE SANCTUARY GC: American Kestrel

    The American Kestrel is the smallest bird in the Falcon family and is also the most familiar and widespread in North America. They perch high along a treeline or often on a roadside wire and with their excellent vision wait to pounce on any one of a wide variety of prey including grasshoppers, mice, lizards, frogs, beetles and caterpillars. If there's not a suitable perch, the Kestrel can easily hover over an open area and swoop down for a catch.

  • SWEET SHOTS FROM THE SANCTUARY GC: Bald Eagle

    The Bald Eagle, the emblem bird of the United States, is soaring above the islands this time of the year. Many Bald Eagles in the south, especially along the coast, are permanent residents but the influx to Southwest Florida is still apparent from birds traveling south from as far as Canada for the Winter season.
