In the air an Osprey flew over with a very large fish in its claws. There appear to be a person parachuting over the water, but as they grew closer they were using an ultralight powered parachute which allowed the person complete mobility.
Early in the morning when we arrived there was some fog across the water which gave interesting views to the architecture that was there. You are going to have to wait for the next blog to see what it was that we saw.
After leaving the salt marsh we went up to the main refuge where we walked around and went down to Flint Rocks. We met some tourists there and spent some time discussing the migratory habits of the monarchs. There were other butterflies present including least skipper's, cabbage whites, sulphas and one butterfly that we were not sure whether it was a comma of a question mark? Thank goodness for the camera and digital. When I looked at the picture on the computer, I was able to tell that this was a question mark and not a comma.
There were a number of songbirds present who decided that they were not going to have their picture taken by the paparazzi. However, a young cedar waxwing was happy to poles on top of the tree for me.
We finished the day would've total of 44 different species of birds that were identified, of course they were some LBJs (Little Brown Jobs).

Until next blog which will show you what was seen in the fog, enjoy.
