Quick breakfast of coffee and pastries and then headed to DDWR at 10am. Overcast and foggy this am. Saw 2 yellow-crowned nigh-herons by side of road just as we entered drive. Not as many white pelicans and roseates today even though it very low tide. Lot of ibis and blue herons feeding. Nothing spotted on dike but lot of tourists. Al found his kingfisher area with mangrove island...same as last year. Was shooting a great blue heron when we saw directly above grh. Back to house for lunch of sandwiches on the porch. Worked on organizing pictures. Too overcast for beach today.
Made Chicken Francese with orange juice, lemon, and wine sauce served with angel hair pasta and garlic sauce. Salad was arugula with honeybelle orange slices, red onion, parmsan cheese, and walnuts. Very good!
