I did my Virgin Creek Survey Friday. It was a beautiful day on the beach. It was warm with no wind. No new birds were found but a Merlin came buzzing through and scattered the shorebirds. Wasn’t fast enough to get a picture. I did have an interesting ride on the bus that day. We had two “service” dogs on the bus. I don’t think that they were real “service” dogs but the drivers are required to take the person’s word for it. This is Smoky, a real friendly dog. Note the two eye colors.
