Shorebird/Seabird Beach Nesting Season Begins Feb. 15 

CHARLOTTE COUNTY, Fla. (Feb. 7, 2024) – Shorebird/seabird beach nesting season begins Feb. 15, 2024. Each nesting season, Charlotte County staff installs temporarily fencing and educational signage around solitary and colony nesting areas to provide a safe buffer zone to nest and raise their young.?? 

Beachgoers are advised to avoid posted shorebird/seabird nesting areas and leave dogs at home. Dogs are seen as predators and have the potential to disturb critical nesting activities. 

Florida is host to many species of shorebirds and seabirds which nest directly on the sand of our coastal beaches.??
