Ring-billed Gull and a Ruddy Turnstone (winter)
“I’am outta here”
Mine, mine no mine!
Ring-billed Gull, first winter
Until next time…
“Come soar with me!”

Hobe Sound, Florida Beach
A few days ago, I spent a few hours walking on the beach at Hobe Sound, Florida. I couldn’t wait to sink my toes into the warm sand.
Happiness is feeling the ocean breeze on my skin; the sight of the sky, water and sand as they kiss each other in harmony; and observing the gorgeous shore birds as they search for food fighting against the power of this environment.
We have arrived back on the east coast of Florida staying at Jonathan Dickinson State Park near Hobe Sound, Florida. The beach at Hobe Sound is only four miles away from camp and I look forward to many more beach treks.
“You ate that already?”
“Now you want more?”
This Royal Tern said, “who put this thing on my leg?”
While hiking in Jonathan, I have had the pleasure of seeing the beautiful Florida Scrub Jay!
Coming up next…
Great Black Backed Gull, Ring Billed Gull, Willet, Sanderling, Ruddy Turnstone and more

Soaring, among the clouds,
riding, wind currants higher and higher,
circling, looking for prey,
gliding, enjoying the hunt,
diving, for the kill.
