Honeymoon Island beach before the tourists get here.

After walking the nature trail at Honeymoon Island State Park, I headed over to the beach to see if there were any shorebirds hanging around.

The usual birds were there: marbled godwits, royal terns and dowitchers.

The waves were splashing over the jetties. It was fun to be out in one of the last cool windy days before the heat sets in (and the tourists).

    Terrific shots again, I love the Marbled Godwit having a scratch, brilliant.
    Take care, Gordon.

  2. I skipped over honeymoon to go to caladesi island, no kestrels there! I’ll have to check it next time, beautiful pictures.
