|1) Today was the maiden voyage in my new Necky Zoar and the sunrise experienced from the water was worth the early morning start and gloomy forecast.|
|2) After a brief rain, it started to get misty and foggy – not a good day to take photos.|
|3) This was a good day to be kayaking with a stopped up nose (cold). Dead fish were abundant along the banks of Bay Grass Creek.|
|4) Whatever killed the fish didn’t seem to be bothering these white ibis or other birds.|
|5) Sandpipers were busy on the mud flats today. Judging by a bird book guide, it looks like these are Short-Billed Dowitchers.|
|6) Looking at a bird book guide, it looks like this bird is a Greater Yellowlegs.|
|7) There were bits of blue sky showing through the clouds occasionally. The reflections on the water looked like this for most of the trip.|
|8) White Pelicans at rest.|
|9) White Pelicans at at play.|
