|Young Black Racer doing its hunting in a tree|
So Matheson Hammock, We had 2 visits to the East side of Old Cutler and one to the West, the reason for this was we spend quite a bit of time driving along Old Cutler and its easy to pop in.
Not a lot doing around the ponds near the entrance apart from the snake, although there was some peckers about that where quite small but unfortunately didn't get a positive ID.
Round the lagoon and the loop however was something worth the look, starting with --------
|This little beauty, Semipalmated Plover, of which there was quite a few.|
|Easy to spot near the water, but on the loop where there was a rough area of ground they where well camouflaged.|
|Also a nice little flock of Ruddy Turnstones|
|I purposely put the front one out of focus to emphasise the water droplets on the back one.|
|Last of the Least Sandpiper.|
|Killdeer, what a gorgeous bird.|
|Killdeer, handsome what.|
|And what hidden colours.|
|and it wouldn't be a party without these guys Boat-tailed Grackle|
|It gives the impression its drinking, but this would not be the case it being salt water, so it must be catching insects or invertebrates|
