Shorebirds 2015, Deer Lake State Park, FL

Deer Lake State Park beach stretches for 1/2 mile on the Gulf of Mexico. Between the lake inoutfall to the west and the dune crossover ramp stairs to the east is what I call Blessings Beach. Walking at dawn this year revealed three treasures.

For an overview without Willets, see Deer Lake State Park 6-11-15 on YouTube or Vimeo. Other wildlife includes ghost crabs, great blue herons, sanderlings, brown pelicans, and a variety of sea gulls.
