Florida Pelicans and Other Seabirds
Sanibel Island has thick mangrove islands on it and is home to 300 different species of birds.
The brown pelicans nest in colonies on mangrove islands. Their shrinking habitat is a concern.
The laughing gull that is also featured on this card is the only gull that breeds in Florida.
