Snowy plover nesting season has officially begun in Florida, though the snowy plovers of Sanibel do not typically lay their first eggs until early April, the Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation reported. Over the next month, snowy plovers will begin returning to Sanibel’s beaches to find a mate and establish a nesting territory. SCCF staff will begin roping off nesting areas as they are identified. The public is reminded to please remember to observe wildlife from a respectful distance and stay out of all posted areas. Snowy plovers and their nests are very small and are hard to see due to their incredible camouflage. If you see a snowy plover, email shorebirds@sccf.org.
