When you are at the beach you will get the opportunity to take pictures of many kinds of birds.
I love pelicans they are one of my favorite water birds. On this day there were plenty of brown pelicans and a few white ones.
We saw some Forster’s Tern and Caspian Tern. There were a few Neotropic Cormorants, Ring Billed Gulls, Sanderlings, Wilson’s Plover, and a Great Blue Heron. There were plenty of birds to see and photograph it was quite exciting.
I was using my Canon 400mm 5.6L lens for most of the bird pictures I took. This keeps me from scaring off the birds because I do not have to be that close to them to photograph them.
The gulf coast has so much to offer and being able to see all these birds in one location was fantastic.
We had walked quite a ways down the beach and left our chairs in the truck. I could have sat there for hours watching the birds next time I am taking the wagon for the supplies.
Life is busy, hectic and sometimes complicated but taking the time to enjoy nature is very important it helps me rejuvenate.
