Day 35 Continued

After my walk on the beach and coffee, we went for a drive at Ding Darling.  Not many birds other than a few white pelicans, many ibis, yellow-crowned night herons, a hawk, shorebirds, blue herons, tri-colored herons, reddish egrets, great egrets,  ospreys on their nests, and the other regulars. Still looking for black -crowned herons.  I wonder where are the roseate spoonbills ...none in sight. These were the best shots of the day.

 Then back to the house for a lunch of ham sandwiches,  We then spent a restful afternoon on the beach.  Saw a group of short-billed dowitchers,  ibis, willets, sanderlings, ruddy turnstones, plovers, and just a few gulls. Not any brown pelicans.  No signs of great blue herons or the eagle from this morning.

Ibis Feeding

For dinner, I made chicken piccata served with garlicky angel hair pasta, tossed salad, and  garlic rolls. We ate on the porch and then Al watched the horse races at Northfield Park on the internet. I did some posting on this blog.
