I got back out to visit the birdies today. The Osprey nests seem to be fine. Moms sitting on eggs. Dads nearby or off on a fishing trip for Mom.
But the most fun was when I pulled into the #1 parking lot at Fort Pickens and discovered that some Least Terns had decided it was bath day. Rain sometime yesterday was just enough to fill some low spots on the edges of the lot.
Here’s the best sequence. It’s a new first for me. I’ve never seen a Least Tern doing the backstroke.
I loved my time away with Jerri, but I have to admit – I missed these little buggers.
