Super long post...
As promised from my last post here is the rack I purchased, if I had to review it for the money it's perfect,.it's not the best made one, and it's not the best quality, but for the price it's just right...
Fishermen lined up
So those are the trouble shooting things I ran into,
but once I arrived at the jetty cove area I had a blast.
found Semipalmated Plover, Least Tern, Black Bellied Plover, Snowy Egret, Willet, Wilson's Plover with chicks, and two Whimbrel, one took to the air and flew to a pond farther away but one hung out for a photo opt.
They always remind me of an ice cream sundae...dripping with color
Oh and a couple of Oyster Catchers showed up----> distant view..
When I see a Tern in the air, the first thing I look for is the wing tips, the second is leg color and the 3rd is bill color. BUT where is his legs??? LoL tucked in pretty tight.
across the waterway on the opposite bank I could make out a few more skimmers.
No hiding that beak
If you like to hang out call 843 357 7777
the ride back was fine, what is normally an hr walk of 2 miles I did in about 20 minutes and that's with photo stops!! I still don't have my biking legs yet. Anyways it was more of a challenge that I had wanted but I did not figure in the tide, so the beach was wide open for the return I could easily get behind the fishermen the ones who remained most were gone,
Sanderlings in the surf
did you know they can grow a new limb if one comes up missing for some "unforeseen" reason?
I parked before exiting the park and walked along the sides of the Mullet Pond, had more Black Bellied Plover, along with Least Sandpiper, and Semipalmated Sandpiper along with Semipalmated Plover...
Semi Plover with a long worm...
a Least Sandpiper in the sand...
The word semipalmated refers to a slight amount of webbing between the toes...
and the usual Great Blue Heron
And Yellowlegs, greater
I was surprised at how crowded it was people have come out of the woodwork like
