But the most exciting sight of the day was spotting the elusive and secretive Mangrove Cuckoo in mangroves along the boardwalk near the entry gate to the drive. Al got the photograph below:
We were very excited to see this bird and it was the fourth time we have spotted him in DDWR.
After a lunch of sandwiches, we spent a couple hours at the beach and saw more birds on the beach than in previous days. There will more photos of shore birds in later posts.
Tonight I made Shrimp Scampi with red peppers, mushrooms, and garlic served over pasta with salad and hot rolls. We enjoyed this day of warmth and sun.
