10/3/2017 :  Amelia Island area, FL:  We were excited to see juvenile Peregrine Falcons playing in the wind
over the wild beaches.  Grabbed the camera  and had 30 in three hours!  How thrilling to catch full frame
pics of these beauties as they swooped overhead.  One caught an injured, unidentified shearwater that
we were hurrying over the sands to see.  Many Osprey individuals were hunting as well while a Parasitic
Jaeger allowed us to approach slowly as it rested on the beach.  What a morning!  
Also shown: Greater Black-backed Gull , Brown Pelican , Piping Plover , Royal Tern , Sanderling flock, and
Short-billed Dowitcher .
10/14/2017 :  Amelia Island area, FL:  Migration gave us an American Kestrel, pleased with its catch,
hunting along the dunes.  Also: A Brown Pelican group at sunrise along with Caspian Tern , Laughing
Gull, Lesser Black-backed Gull , a banded Piping Plover , Sanderling , Semipalmated Plover , Snowy
Egret , and a Willet with a crab breakfast.  The days have been simply stunning!
