Ft. Clinch, Amelia Island:  Dawn brought the predicted NE winds and more
rain than anticipated through noon today.  Despite the gloom and drizzle
numerous osprey were aloft over the river and inlet attracting the attention
of several bald eagles.  Only a  handful of peregrine and merlin were active
with several of the former very high aloft sailing into the headwinds
through the scud clouds. Amongst the mixed-species  larids roosting at the
foot of the jetty was a banded Caspian tern b[AEJ] that was first resighted
four years previously on Big Bird Island in Nassau Sound. Later, numerous
osprey and an adult and juvenile peregrine were perched in snags in the
Egan's Creek marsh vicinity of the N. 14th street bridge. Nothing of
interest to report for the Bailey Rd. soccer fields. Dozens of Bobolink
flushing from the city airport's fields while the maintenance mower
systematically leveled the standing forage and covert.
