Birds on the Beach

These are a couple of birds I saw on my first day in Florida.


Sea Gulls





Sandpipers



The sandpipers were very quick so I had a hard time getting a good picture of them.  I'll be showing more birds from Florida later.


Thanks for stopping by.  Have a good rest of the week.

See you next time

Barb

Hello Barb, it is relaxing to sit and watch the birds on the beach.. I love the gull and the sandpipers, great sightings and photos.

beauties! don't get to see too many shorebirds here but once in a blue moon we'll get a sandpiper stopping in!

Nice captures Barb. It must have been so nice to be sitting on the beach and watching the waves and the birds. You must be missing it.

Someone else just had a picture of the gulls on the beach. As annoying as they can be, they sure are fun to watch! Enjoy your time in Florida! We are headed that way in a week!

Sandpipers do dash about quickly!
Love the first photo

We had six inches of snow last week that was almost gone yesterday and this morning awoke to a fresh new dusting.Thoughts of a beach day as I read this are warming.
Nice captures!

Lovely to think of you happily enjoying the Florida beach. You did a great job capturing the photos of such skitterers.

Wish I was at the beach..our gulls have left for the Winter..which was a good move on their part. Janice

Awesome shore birds, I see them here at the jersey shore and yes, those sandpipers are quick buggers!!

I love the sound of the gulls against the background of the surf. Have fun down there!

The gulls are different from the ones i see here. And now I know where all the sandpipers have gone. ;))
