It is low tide and the Lee Co Bird Patrol is offering its monthly beach/bird walk. The exciting part about going birding is that you never know for sure what you will see - yet every single event seems to be better than the last, this day was no exception.....come and take a peek....
|Plovers - in the back is the Piping Plover, in the front is the Semi-palmated Plover.|
|Overhead we heard the Bald Eagles before we saw them....landing in a far away spit of sand with the Sanibel Lighthouse in the background.|
|They were quite vocal.|
|Checking the surrounding|
|After a bit I diverted my attention to the Marbled Godwit that was by my side.|
|Amazing how it can sink its head to find morsels of food.|
|Must be worth it, check the smile on his face! Then I heard uproar from the crowd - I looked up and saw the Bald Eagles copulating.|
|In Eagle's world, it is quickly over and I barely managed to get the end result.|
|Overhead, a Kingfisher was chattering and aiming for lunch.|
What a treat! Today was Bald Eagle day and everyone was delighted, myself included.
