Hunting for food at Fort Desoto

The north beach marsh at Fort Desoto is always busy with birds hunting for food. The water is shallow on the lagoon side so there is usually plenty to eat. I was there earlier this week and found a few birds getting an early lunch. I sat quietly in the sand for a while and they were busy all around me getting a bite. Eventually I got hungry and headed out for some lunch myself.
