Stay in the know about wildlife, water quality, and ecosystems on Sanibel and Captiva Islands and in Southwest Florida

Updated SCCF Sanibel Bird Lists Available

February 9, 2022

SCCF has updated its two Sanibel Bird Lists: A comprehensive guide and an abridged version. As the list grew in length with all the species documented on the islands, including rarities, it became apparent that a separate, shorter list might be more practical for use in the field. SCCF is grateful to everyone who offered their help and submitted more species for the list. This list is a work in progress and will be edited periodically to reflect new submissions and changes in status in abundance or nesting. To download a copy, click here for the comprehensive list and here for the abridged version. If you have questions, or new submissions to the list, please send them to and they will be reviewed.
