Dunlins digging in the sand. (Thanks Steve, for the ID).

Ruddy turnstone all alone.
Pelican flying by.
Perfect windy day.
I headed down to the outlet mall just south of St. Petersburg. I threw my camera in the car just in case I saw something interesting. It was a cool and windy day so I was not surprised to see a bunch of kiteboarders in the water. I pulled off on the access road near the Sunshine Skyway bridge and snapped a few pictures of them. It looks like fun but it's really hard. My hubby does it and he has taken lessons and still says it's hard. There were a few shorebirds hanging around but nothing unusual.
