Sandwiches on the Beach

This past weekend I went to Jetty Park a little after sunrise and got a chance to enjoy a few Sandwiches on the beach. 

One of the first birds I spotted as I made my way to the beach was a Magnificent Frigatebird circling the sky above the inlet. This is the second one I've seen over the past week as I also saw one near the Sebastian Inlet. Numerous Ospreys and a few Black Vultures were also soaring the skies. 

I was most excited to see a few Sandwich Terns that were standing proudly among the Royals.

Sandwich Terns are handsome looking, medium sized terns.

This Laughing Gull discovered a healthy-looking breakfast in the surf; a washed up bone!

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Stunning shots as always!
    Wish you a wonderful summer, Tammy.

  2. Preciosas Tammy. Saludos desde Extremadura.

  3. That little Sandwich Tern is so handsome, with it's yellow-tipped bill!! Great shots. I miss visiting Florida.

  4. the terns always look like they have such attitude. :)

  5. My favourite is the Sandwich Tern, it's totally stunning.

  6. Amazing shots as always Tammy! I don`t like having sandwiches on the beach, the sand always gets in them! ;)

  7. It's nice to sea your Gulls. Sandwich Terns are very cool, like they dipped their beaks in carmel.

    So now you're seeing Frigate birds, hmm...I think there are some old superstitions about that. Something momentous must be heading your way!

  8. I like their black crested head.

  9. Fabulous images Tammy of all the species along the beach. I just love those Sandwich Terns with their punky haircuts.

  10. Is the last one a laughing gull. I so love terns...those sandwich ones are they make such a racket like my caspian terns. I will put my caspians in blog soon. I like visiting here. Those bird names are pretty strange when you think about it.

  11. Very good pictures Tammy..... sharpness is fantastic.
