While out watching the Galleon Andalucia come in on the Jetty Park Pier, I noticed there were many birds on the beach side. I went over there and found quite a mixture of birds. There were Royal Terns, Least Terns, Ruddy Turnstones, Black Skimmers, Herring Gulls, Laughing Gulls, Mourning Doves, sandpipers, Fish Crows, Semi-Palmated Plovers, Black Vultures, and Osprey easily visible in one small area. I even saw a Loggerhead turtle out in the water.
So today I’m posting a few of the shots with the Black Skimmers, tomorrow the Royal Terns and other birds..
