Oh well, Education, Education, Education

This is what I watched as I came up to do the bird survey at Jekyll Point
 The family appeared to be totally unaware of the birds other than that they could fly.
 But once the family walked on around the corner the birds settled down.  There were all kinds of terns out on the beach including this one Black Tern.
 Another wonderful surprise were three Piping Plovers that scurried out of the way and then settled into the upper dunes with some Sanderlings.
 Here is one more picture of the gang resting.  There is a young Sandwich Tern behind the Black Skimmer.  Yes, it was very hot out there watching these birds but the variety of birds helped me stay a little longer.
