Coral Cove and Jupiter Inlet…..

December 21, 2012

Coral Cove and Jupiter Inlet are two of my favorite beach outings. Coral Cove’s 14 acres of breathtaking beach are located on Jupiter Island. Coral Cove offers some of the best examples of natural limestone formations in Florida. This beach is fun to photograph with the waves crashing over and though the limestone rocks. The shore birds seem to love this area as well.

Jupiter Inlet is a beautiful waterway leading out to the Atlantic Ocean. The Inlet offers fishing, boating, picnicking and is a great spot for watching and photographing the birds.

Bird sighting on this day:

Sanderling can be seen chasing receding waves on ocean beaches, and running away from them when they return. They breed in the high Arctic and winter along the Atlantic and Pacific coasts from Canada to Argentina. They are fun to observe and photograph.

Ruddy Turnstones are stocky, brightly patterned shorebirds (non-breeding, not so much) that can be seen actively pecking, probing, and flipping over stones and other objects along rocky shores – as their name suggests they breed on rocky arctic coasts and tundra.
