Shore birds of St George Island State Park
March 4th & 5th, 2008
We arrived on Tuesday, but on Wednesday headed to to St George Island for some shelling or rather "beach combing".
When Joyce & I arrived on St George Island we immediately headed to St George Island State Park where we plan to do our beach combing. We are heading to St George Island State Park because that is where we can find shells and other floatsum that makes its way onto the beach.

Sandpiper on beach in St George Island State Park
Occasionally, one of these small shore birds will slow down for a picture. It doesn't happen often. But this is a common sight when walking the beach at St George Island State Park.
Willet flying along the beach at St George Island State Park
Willets like this one were around us all day in St George Island State Park. Willets are one of those birds that show more color when flying than when on the ground.
