  1. I saw these birds on the gulf side of St. Vincent Island on January 8, 2020. They were hanging out with Terns, Gulls and Pelicans. My girlfriend got a little too close in her kayak and they took flight. We regretted disturbing them, but delighted in the spectacle. I had never before seen this bird. A Whatbird search makes me think they are Black Skimmers. I think there is also a juvenile Forster's Tern photo bombing one of the pics. Please confirm or correct.
  2. I saw this bird at Indian Pass, Florida, January 8, 2020. It was on the beach across the pass from St. Vincent Island. I had never seen this bird before. Whatbird search makes me think it's an American Avocet. Please confirm or correct.
  3. Yeah Jerry. Saw that after I posted. Wish I had seen it before I posted. Thanks gain.
  4. Cool! Thanks, all. Glad to add Palm Warbler to my life list.
  5. Thanks, Bird Nut. I guess we don't yet have consensus. Looking at Palm Warbler pics, mine seems to match the Fall plumage pic.
  6. Taken a few days ago on St. George Island, FL. A group of 6 or so of these little birds (smaller than a house finch) were making short individual flights less than 10 yards, moving the group through the dunes within sight of the gulf.
  7. Taken today in Apalachicola, FL. It pays to take your camera everywhere you go. Was sitting in line, waiting on road repair crew and this beauty was flying overhead. Stuck my head and camera out the window and took these pictures. Have seen many adult Bald Eagles in the vicinity and this one was about the same size as the adults (HUGE!). Thanks in advance!
  8. Taken earlier this week on Saint George Island, FL. This bird spent more time diving than floating. Thanks in advance!
