Bird Walk

This morning was Crazy as a Coot Bird Walk.

We went to Andy’s way and saw 25 different species in less than an hour – over 100 birds. My phone does not take pictures of any of these adequately – but I did get a picture of the pre-historic horse-shoe crabs which had hauled themselves out from under the sand to do their mating thing. I am told the female lays the eggs, then the male covers them, and it takes them a while. Click for bigger pictures.

The most impressive birds – to me – are the egrets and herons. We saw great blue herons, white heron and snowy egrets and a first for me, three yellow crowned herons strutting their stuff – we decided they were mating too. See a picture here – the ones we saw were even more yellow on top.
