Fuzzy baby owl hiding in the shade. The little ball of fuzz next to it was it’s younger sibling.
Peaking out. The two baby owls at Fort Desoto are doing well.
Black bellied plover posing for me.
A willet actually sitting on the sand. You don’t see this very often.
Getting a bite.
These willits were busy eating.
Another beautiful sunny cool morning in February at Fort Desoto Park. I’ve been heading to the park almost every weekend. No mosquitos and heat for now. It won’t last long. This Sunday morning in mid-February hubby came with me. We stopped by the owl’s nest for a while and then walked up to the north end of the beach. There weren’t many shorebirds out this morning. I think there were more photographers there than birds. Most had come by to see the baby owls but the lack of shorebirds was disappointing. Still, just being out on the beach on this perfect day was worth it.
