Rare bird sighted in area
An unusual avian visitor to Charlotte County is a large shorebird called the whimbrel. This is a very large shorebird with a long down-curved bill for picking and probing in the mud for invertebrate prey. It has been sighted at Cedar Pt, and nearby Palm/Knight Island and Stump Pass by Jeff Bouton, Tom Duch, and Margaret and Bill Dunson.
