Hi fellow FLORIDABIRDS-L subscribers!

I am going to be birding the area from Crystal River to Ft. DeSoto from 2/20 to 2/22. I am fairly familiar with the area and have Pranty and DeLorme and was wondering if anyone has a current "hotspot" for any of the following species:

Yellow-crowned Night-Heron
Wilson's Plover
Piping Plover
Snowy Plover
Franklin's Gull

We don't see these birds in my area so I will really appreciate any help you can offer. Also, I was wondering if any of the "rarities" were still around (Heerman's Gull, etc.)?
