Purple Sandpiper at Ponce Inlet

Two of my aunts and uncles are in town staying with my parents, and so we all decided to go to the beach for a couple hours this morning.

It was pretty fun hanging out with my daughter and extended family, and of course, I kept an eye on the birds.

I didn’t see much that was unusual, though I did see about 30 Barn Swallows flying in from the ocean–nice to see them returning.

The biggest highlight, though, was seeing a at the jetty. At least one seems to turn up here every winter, so I always hope to see one when I visit.

This morning I was not disappointed. These are by far my best photos of this beautiful little bird.
