8/4/2014  South Amelia Island and Huguenot Memorial Park, FL:  A quick beach check awarded us with a
Wilson's Plover (with 2 Juv), Sanderling , Sandwich Tern Feeding young , Royal Tern juv. begging, a
ragged Mourning Dove with its own juvenile, and a Greater Black-backed Gull . The real star, however,
was a young Cooper's Hawk sitting on a grill with its kill.  We made the most of the hawk's cooperation
until a car drove up and scared it off.  (For Sea Turtles and Terns feeding young, click NEXT PAGE below)
8/7/2014  Amelia Island, FL:  Least Tern colony still has chicks.  Also: An obliging Blue-gray Gnatcatcher
was found by the parking lot. (For Sea Turtles and more Terns feeding young, click NEXT PAGE below)
8/8/2014 Rt466, FL:  It was reported that there was a 300 Swallow-tailed Kite fest south of us.  At about
9:45am, kites started showing up, grabbing flying bugs above the melon fields.  We counted 50+ but they
vanished by noon and we understand that few were sighted the next day.  What amazing and effortless
aerialists!   Mississippi Kites were seen as well.  (For Sea Turtles and Terns feeding young, click NEXT
