Please keep an extra eye out for birds and wildlife in peril at this time. Any storm causes extra stress. Tonight on my post stormy walk on the beach, I encountered a bird in distress on the beach. I am especially concerned for all those I have observed in the last few days letting their beloved dogs roam free on the beach, unleashed. This bird does not need to be rushed by an inquisitive dog. There is also a blue heron that regularly feeds at the outfall at Eastern Lake. There is not a day that goes by that some dog, unleashed, rushes and disturbs this wild animal. Please be mindful. I'll post some pictures later.
