Wilson's Plover finishing a crab, Roseate Spoonbill flock resting , Royal Tern with a Caspian Tern next to
it for comparison, and 2 Royal Terns squabbling over a fish.
|9/14/2014 Amelia Island, FL: A very tame Great Blue Heron was feeding along the Green Way and gave the
camera some good looks. A surprising (and surprised) juvenile Yellow-crowned Night-Heron paused to
look up during its hunt while a male Red-bellied Woodpecker was foraging in the trees with its young.
|9/21/2014 Huguenot Memorial Park, FL: We loved watching an elegant Reddish Egret hunt. The mostly
young Opsrey individuals have improved on their fishing skills and we witnessed a number of
successful catches. A young Snowy Egret (with yellowish legs) was also enjoying breakfast. Also shown:
Sandwich Tern , Caspian Tern , Common Tern , Turkey Vulture, and a Varied Lorikeet . (Kidding - Just
seeing who is paying attention. Yes, we are STILL going through our Australia files!)
|9/28/2014 Fort Clinch, Amelia Island, FL: It is always great to see a Red Knot - wish there had been a
whole flock. Also, our more common Ruddy Turnstone , Willet, and Sanderling .
