Your Daily Beach Therapy from Ocean's Reach

Feathered Guest

A lost carrier pigeon has taken a detour from his travels by lodging in a window sill at Ocean’s Reach. One of our guests was able to read the bird’s registration leg band and found out the bird was raised in San Diego and later sold to a buyer on the east coast of Florida.

It’s no wonder that a lost bird would wander to Sanibel. Our barrier islands offer a large wildlife habitat for 230 kinds of birds as well as “snowbirds”, full-time residents and guests, which makes for an irresistible stopover.
