The Main Attraction of Miramar Beach
The importance of these coastal wintering grounds has been universally acknowledged all over the world. At least three-fourths (500 plus species) of migratory birds incorporate the coastline or the coastal plain into their migration routes. The migratory birds, like Plovers and Gulls return to Miramar beach each winter, as it gives them a brief respite from the harsh winter back home. Here they find food in plenty in the form of aquatic invertebrates, seeds and insects.
