Fort de Soto’s North Beach never disappoints. This time, it turned up a Ring-billed Gull with a seahorse surprise!
The light was bad but the birds were good this weekend at Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge. Wigeons and loons were close!
I saw my first-ever loon yesterday at Fort De Soto. I’m pretty sure he’s a Common Loon. He was swimming not too far from shore along the North Beach. I had been thinking how neat it would be to see a loon, then I looked up, and there one was! Not many mornings give you that kind of luck, and this wasn’t my only lifer of the morning. More on that tomorrow… :)
