Hello Floridabirders.
 
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. 
 
Good birding.
