J.N. “Ding” Darling National Wildlife Refuge   Leave a comment

Located in the Gulf of Mexico on Florida’s barrier island Sanibel, the J.N. “Ding” Darling National Wildlife Refuge is part of the largest undeveloped mangrove ecosystem in the United States. The refuge is world famous for its spectacular migratory bird populations — providing an important habitat to over 230 species of birds. The best months to visit for birding are December through March during low tide when the birds are feeding on the exposed mud flats. Sunset photo by Al Hoffacker.
