It has been unseasonably hot this year and beginning the day with the first light is in order, beside - what's not to love to be able to witness the sun rise as a new day begins!
Today's adventure takes place at the southern part of Fort Myers Beach aka CWA, so come along...
|The Black Skimmers can be found there in great numbers as they use this area for their nesting ground.|
|Interestingly enough there is a pair of Black Scoters that did not leave with their peers during migration - so, it's a nice bonus for us.|
|One of many Wilson Plovers spotted along the beach - adults and young ones are seen strolling the beach now.|
|A nice addition to our list was to see 18 Roseate Spoonbills - these seemed to be in a yoga balancing act.|
|One of the three Reddish Egrets seen feeding.|
|Several Marsh Rabbits were along the edges of the beach vegetation munching away while keeping a keen eye on their surroundings.|
|A Young Great Blue Heron - check the plumage and the legs.|
|Elaine was sharing a moment with GBHE|
|Nice little group of Ruddy Turnstone, Snowy Plover and Sanderling.|
|The Least Terns are still nesting.|
|A young version,|
|A Wilson Plover - check the black nails on those pink toes.|
|A single Oystercatcher - it might have been the only one but its striking look steals the show.|
|A Snowy Plover|
|A gorgeous Black Skimmer preening|
|I'd say it cleans up pretty good!|
I hope you get a chance to visit this quiet pristine spot and spend some time with those beautiful creatures.
