These birds are not social distancing even outside. There were so many crammed into this tiny spit at low tide. Mostly terns and gulls in the front but all of the brown in the far back were red knots.
There were lots of different shorebirds early in November at Fort Desoto. Several times something spooked them and most of them took off.
I turned around and saw these marbled godwits fighting.
Willets and dowitchers on the shoreline on Outback Key.
A great egret came in for a landing right in front of me.
One of my favorite spots at the north beach.
A storm was moving in so it was time to go home.
