Pond full of redheads before you enter Fort Desoto.
Vultures on the grass at East Beach turnaround. I think they were just resting and getting a tan.
Osprey flies over my head with a half eaten fish.
A juvenile gull of some sort. It doesn’t look like a laughing gull. I’m going with herring gull, maybe born late summer.
Cormorant preening on the lightpost. Don’t stand under a lightpost on a fishing pier. You could get pooped on.
Fish crow with some fish guts. Probably stole it from a fisherman.
I told that black bellied plover not to try to eat the stick. He wouldn’t listen.
Laughing gull taking a bath.
Short video of a ruddy turnstone bathing. They are so cute when they are taking a bath.
Just a handful of different things I saw on a weekend morning walk around Fort Desoto right before the holidays.
