Photo Walk - Saturday June 25th 2011

The weather again cooperated, as did the birds and old reliable itself: The Lighthouse. The usual beach birds were present. This included a very active Least Tern as well as American Oystercatcher and Piping Plover chicks. My, how they have grown! We have been able to follow them for the past month on these Saturday Photo Walks, and they have grown noticeably each week. Today, the American Oystercatcher chicks were almost the size of their parents, and the Piping Plover chick we saw was full grown. It will be interesting to see what next week brings!
