Common Loon -
I saw a group of these by the ranger station and then this lone one at the end of the beach.
"Shark Eye" is the common name or "Moon Snail". I have never seen one of these alive before or one so large. This one was about the size of my palm.
The mother great horned owl is back on her nest again this year! This was one of the main reasons I decided to come to Fort DeSoto today, and I was pleasantly surprised.
