Florida Shore Birds

Continuing with photos of the birds we saw in Florida last month, today's post features a variety of shore birds. There are several for which I don't know the identities. I know many of you are much better at identifying birds than I am, so feel free to share your expertise.

  4. What beautiful and interesting birds. I love the way God created different species for different areas of the country...the world for that matter.

  5. Beautiful photos, especially of the skimmers! I read that their lower beak is longer than the upper one, and it's very clear to see when clicking on your photo even with the beak closed. That's really a great shot. Love the reflections in the water, also. I love to watch birds, but I'm just a novice so I don't know the names of the others. Have a great day.

  11. Love those skimmers! And the terns have so much personality. So glad you got to see all these. I think some of the other birds that aren't identified are some sort of sandpiper. The last one has the markings of a killdeer, but I can't see if it has orange eyes or not. Great set, Linda!! I'd love to have seen the skimmers in person.

  13. I was lucky to identify an eagle last summer, I'm afraid I am not a birder.
