St Marks NWR

You know you love birds and being a birder when you brave 100 degree heat, 85% humidity and Yellow Flies as big as hummingbirds! The birds were truly terrific today at the refuge. We saw 19 species of shorebird including many Black-necked Stilts and Wilson's Plovers. The Roseate Spoonbills and American White Pelicans are still present. We also saw a River Otter out on Stoney Bayou. The Yellow Warblers are migrating thru, we saw 3.
Hopefully it will get cooler sooner rather than later but it won't stop me from birding!
happy birding
