As I sit here in central Ohio looking out on my snow-covered yard, I'm looking forward to 3 1/2 days on the west coast of Florida on March 3-6 for bird photography. I'm having trouble deciding between staying in Tampa (where I fly into) and doing Ft. DeSoto, etc, or driving the 150 miles to Ft. Myers Beach and doing Estero & Sanibel. I would appreciate information on recent bird activity in these two areas. I'm most interested in shorebird photography, but would also like to get burrowing owl & scrub-jay. I use a Canon 10D & 400 & 500mm lenses. Thanks very much.
