The marshes are drying up. It's hard to see in this panorama, but there are dozens of birds huddled into this narrow trough of water still remaining in the Powell Creek Preserve. It's a sign of the drought we are experiencing in Southwest Florida. The wells are drying up in Cape Coral. The Sanibel Captiva Conservation Foundation has been pleading the Army Corp of Engineers for an increase in flow to the Caloosahatchee estuary to reduce salinity. Some afternoon thunderstorms would be a welcome sight about now.
