Ft. Clinch State Park pier/jetty: A FOS Purple Sandpiper was present on the
jetty rocks yesterday at midday. Atypical for the species, it was not
associating with 175 Ruddy Turnstone clustered on several of the larger
granite boulders.  Several flocks of Black Scoter were rafted on the ocean
and inlet channel with one flock foraging in the turbulent jetty rocks. A
single Common loon passed over the jetty moving south. More than thousand
mixed larids peacefully roosted on the ocean beach until a young couple's
three small children rampaged through the flocks as proud momma captured
Kodak memories. Ironically, two photographers stood passively by as their
avian subjects were flushed off the beach.  

 

Might there be a common theme between this and the Siesta Key report?
