It’s fascinating to watch the daily patterns of our bird house families, the red-bellied woodpeckers. In keeping with the scape of Sanibel, Ocean’s Reach provides a natural environment for all our guests, both human and wild!
Wander through our preserve and observe the survival and reproduction habits of the woodpeckers living in our two bird houses. The young woodpeckers, growing in size and strength, are well fed by their moms. The daily diet of an omnivore includes insects, nuts, fruits and seeds which are plentiful in our preserve area and quite tasty to our avian residents.
