Fort DeSoto - April 19, 2015

At the park again this weekend.  At this point I've pretty much given up on the migrants being here this year.  Take a look at a comparison with this weekend last year.  I did find some nice-looking birds at North Beach though.

weird little teeth on this common merganser 
 reddish egret
whimbrel (first time seen at this park, second time ever)
group of dowitchers, marbled godwits, and willets (tricolored heron below)
