There were also about 20 White Ibis in breeding color in the pond along the Elliot Coues Trail. I was able to get a few nice pics of their antics. Also along the trail were Bluebirds, Yellow-rumps, mating Doves and House Finches, grackles, Red-wing BBs, and the ever present Cardinals and Mockingbirds.
On the beach at the inlet was a lone Ruddy Turnstone, and in the inlet a couple of Ruddy Ducks . There was a great sunrise which made the morning special. See pics below.
