ladydebubba the robin is cool but I really like the pink flamingo in the back ground!!! Native to TN????
On the ones I always saw in Destin, the red spot was not as pronounced as in that pic. I also think that different varieties of it dont even have the red spot.That's pretty close. I don't remember the red spot above the bill, though. If they will cooperate, I'll try to look again tomorrow AM.
I saw a pair of them above 98 between 285 & 395 a few days ago. They came low enough for me to definitely identify them as bald eagles. I have heard that there is 2 or 3 nests along the intercoastal but no one will reveal the exact location for obvious reasons. I also had a golden eagle drop a snake on my car about 4 years ago on Bay Dr. Freaked me out at first but then I forgot about the snake watching the eagle in the tree trying to figure out how to get its meal back.OK, here we go...
Sunday, I saw an eagle soaring over the beach near Watersound. But I didn't get a photo, nor was it close enough to identify.
This morning, it was seen again by some folks vacationing just east of Eastern Lake. They say it's a bald eagle, for sure. It surprised the toot out of them, as they were expecting to see shorebirds.
Might want to retract this... from the looks of Seaside todayNot old coots, the snowbirds aren't here yet. Just coots
