Birds at Baldpoint

On Saturday morning at the FSU Marine Lab, I attended a very informative presentation “Beach-Nesting Shorebirds: Florida’s Original Beach Babies” by Bonnie Samuelsen. The images below were taken in the Bald Point State Park after the presentation during a guided bird walk by Bonnie and Audubon Florida's Coastal Bird Tech, John Murphy. We also viewed American oyster catchers and marbled godwits through John's fine spotting scope.

You can almost hear this bird proclaiming
Willet, Willet, Willet, Willet!!!!
