Fort DeSoto - March 11, 2014

Went to check on the owls again, but one had already gone off into the woods.  Talking to people, every year the babies go hide in the woods, find their own tree to slowly climb, and still get some attention from the mother.  The most exciting find was a banded plover on the East Beach.  I looked it up when I got home and  it is a Piping Plover, a life bird for me.  Also saw many other shorebirds including other species of plovers.
