Story Behind the Photo: Willet

Willet, Caladesi Island State Park, Dunedin, FL

Willets are one of the taller shorebirds you may see feeding at the edge of the surf. Here in Florida they are prevalent in the winter and are often seen alongside Sanderlings and various Plovers. While most Willets breed further north in the summer, you can generally still find a few of these shorebirds year round in our area. This Willet was photographed at Caladesi Island State Park, a natural barrier island teaming with shorebirds. The virtually untouched beach at Caladesi Island provides a quiet haven for many wintering shorebirds and fantastic opportunities for bird watching.
