The highlight of this report was seen yesterday evening (7/27). As I was moving into a new house close to the beach, a juvenile MAGNIFICENT FRIGATEBIRD drifted over South Fletcher on the coast of Fernandina Beach. I suspect that the tropical depression from a couple days ago brought this bird inland. The frigate drifted south following S. Fletcher.
Amber M., a co-worker of mine had a FOS BLACK-AND-WHITE WARBLER yesterday at the nature center here at Amelia Island Plantation.
During a kayaking trip on 7/26 six (6) SEMIPALMATED SANDPIPERS, several SPOTTED SANDPIPERS, and a BELTED KINGFISHER were observed at Walker's Landing on plantation property.
The OSPREY have fledged at the end of 14th St. in Fernandina Beach. Recently a family group of five ORCHARD ORIOLES have been frequenting the area as well. YELLOW-THROATED WARBLERS area also in the area.
On the night of 7/25 two Eastern Screech Owls were heard calling at Walker's Landing.
