It was low tide and there were a lot of birds at Boat Meadow Beach. Many were seagulls but you could see other species in the distance, although they were too hard to identify.
The fishing nearby must be good…
I’ve never seen a seal at Boat Meadow Beach, so I was very surprised when I looked out at high tide on Wednesday morning and saw three seals swimming about. They stayed for quite a while. I wonder if the high, high tide had brought them in closer to shore. I hope they left before low tide came…
And then yesterday morning, they were back again at high tide, swimming around by Boat Meadow.
Have you ever seen a seal at Boat Meadow Beach?
Every time I stop at Rock Harbor I hear the cackling call of the Belted Kingfisher but I hadn’t seen him in a while. And then, just the other day, there he was perched on the post searching for lunch in the water below. (Click on blog link for other photo.)
I loved watching him search the water and then dive in and get that delicious meal. You can see how focused he is in the 2nd photograph. Have you seen the two Belted Kingfishers at Rock Harbor?
