NATURE NEWS by sightings volunteer Ed Combs: It is back! The White-crowned Pigeon was seen on Ding's Shell Mound Trail Wednesday morning (11/15). The Pigeon's range usually extends North to about the Everglades, but for the past several years one or two have occasionally ventured as far North as the Refuge. If you try to find it....it always reminds me is a big gray football when it is high in the trees. It is usually quiet and does not move around very much, so it is often a tough search. Thanks to Eary Warren for the photo.
