Rare Bird Spotting

birds

We saw many birds in Florida that we don't see often here in Michigan. Of course there are the seagulls which come to think of it, I often see in the Meijer parking lot. They aren't quite as photogenic there. This reminds me of the first time my dad ever wore shorts - I think when he was in his 30's - a seagull pooped on his leg.

We saw a heron building a nest,

some pelicans perched on the rocks,

and sandpipers pecking around in groups of 4.

But the rarest bird of all was the Birdget which I captured below.

It's interesting--the seagulls do look much more appealing here than in the Meijer parking lot. Nice pictures!

Love the bird pictures. Awesome! However, I'm not familiar with the one with the black and gray stripes.
