|11/7/2014 Amelia Island, Fl: Palm Warbler. Then out on the beach, we were amazed by waves in the wind,
with the Brown Pelicans that coasted in the spray, and with a small Piping Plover flock attempting to rest
on the beach. We were careful not to disturb them. Please remember dogs, ESPECIALLY dogs off the
leash, REALLY disturb resting shorebirds! Thanks.
|11/13/2014 Crystal River area and Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park, Fl: The SP is a wonderful rehab
and recuperation spot for hurt birds where we took advantage of a close Great Horned Owl and American
Flamingo. A double-crested Cormorant and Wood Duck pair were visiting the very cool manatees at the
springs. The nearby beaches and parks provided images of bathing Dunlin , Turkey Vulture , Red-bellied
Woodpecker , House Wren , Great Blue Heron , Chipping Sparrow , Willet , Blue-gray Gnatcatcher ,
Yellow-crowned Night-Heron , and many Yellow-rumped Warblers in colorful foliage .
Also Ruddy Turnstone , Palm Warbler , Gray Catbird , and a river otter munching on fish at sunset.
