“Change of Season in Southwest Florida”

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Change.”

As most of the US prepares for the autumnal color change of leaves, and the winter sports seasons begin. The subtropic area of Southwest Florida experiences a different change. As the days shorten, the various colorful migratory birds numbers begin to increase into the hundreds of thousands with a vast majority staying within the J. N. Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge located on Sanibel Island Florida.

These photos were taken within the past two weeks. I believe they are the advance scouting snowbirds.
