This was the view from the balcony of our hotel room at Coco Beach, Florida. We spent two days there after Disney World to rest and relax.
I went down to the beach a couple of times but never got into the water. I took my camera and the 28 – 300 mm lens to take some photos.
I noticed all the umbrellas on the beach and lounge chairs. I thought I’ll just go down there and sit under an umbrella and enjoy the breeze and sound of the waves coming on shore. No more had I gotten to one of umbrellas, a guy comes running up to me and tells me it $20 to rent the umbrella and $20 for the chairs. I passed.
The birds on the beach let me get very close to them and I had some enjoyment of capturing some images. I spent about a half an hour this morning trying to identify each of these birds. Truthfully I’m just guessing at their names.
So I think this is a black-legged kittiwakes.
These two guys are Short-billed dowitchers.
And for the last bird that I can’t identify, I think these are Sanderlings.
Like I said I’m probably wrong on all of them but I spent all the time I was going to trying to identify them. 🙂
Enjoy your day and be careful.
