There was a report yesterday on the Tropical Audubon Bird Board of 3 species of Plovers at the Lake Worth Beach area so that’s where I headed first thing this morning. I walked about a mile down the beach and only had Sanderlings and Ruddy Turnstones. There were Ring-billed and Laughing Gulls along with a few Royal Terns. Just as I turned around the sky’s opened up and I got soaked, at least from the waist down. I always carry a rain poncho from Wal-Mart. They are 89 cents and are wonderful keeping the camera and the upper half of me dry.
I ended up back on the pier, hiding out from the rain when I noticed a smaller Tern mixed in with the loitering Gulls. It was a good distance away but I was pretty sure it did not have an Orange bill. When the rain finally subsided I made my way down and found this lone Sandwich Tern. The sun popped out, I took my shot and then the heavens opened up again.
I did stop at the Boynton Beach Inlet for 10 minutes with the best bird being a fly over Magnificent Frigatebird.
I went shopping with Terri and then to dinner. We had a little time before sunset so we stopped at Loxahatchee NWR and walked a little. We heard at least two Great Horned Owls and saw 200-300 Glossy Ibis, 11 Spoonbills and many other Waders just prior to this phenomenal sunset.
Thanks for following along!!
