Babies on the beach
Well, the two remaining Wilson's Plover chicks are doing alright so far. See.
The little one on the left is tiny and has a little limp but that don't stop it. I watched it catch wharf crabs and insects.
Further down the beach Ruddy Turnstones were enjoying a cash of horseshoe crab eggs. A couple of other shorebirds were waiting to jump into the feast.
I was able to show one Jekyll 4-H class the Ruddy Turnstone's feast.
