A walk on the beach

We spent the day at the Ding Darling wildlife refuge on Sanibel Island. Lots of birds, a nice 8 mile bike ride and a wonderful talk by Julie Zickefoose at the Education Center. But my photos were disappointing, so instead I'm posting some photos that I took last weekend on Don Pedro Island.

I wonder how close my sister and nephew can get to these birds before they (the birds) fly...

About this close, I guess. The birds are starting to get agitated -

And there they go...

So that's where all the willets have gone!

They are willets right?
