My two days off were filled with a little birding each morning and I managed to see quite a nice group of different species. Nothing new for the year but in another couple of weeks the Shorebirds will start their migration and I still need some of them for the year.
Friday (my Saturday) I took my car in for service so I rode my bike along the beach stopping and scanning the ocean as I made my way South along A1A. The beach was surprisingly quiet and I only ran into one flock of Terns and Gulls at Spanish River Park.
One of the problems at the beach are the not very curtious runners and dog walkers. I love to exercise and I love dogs but if you see someone obviously taking pictures of a group of birds you probably shouldn’t allow your dog to run through the bird and if your running go around not through! It does cause the birds to fly a lot, which stresses them but also does allow for flight shots.
This morning I decided to scout the Ag fields in Western Palm Beach as this is where all the shorebirds will be soon. I had a nice morning with many cooperative subjects and I’ll just let their pictures speak for them.

I might get out to Green Cay this evening so I might have a few more birds before my weekends over. Thank you so much for visiting!
