Our farewell morning at
Hunting Island State park..
Sunrise photos taken from inside Homey..
We needed to pack up and leave the park before 11 for our five hour drive to Atlanta..
I didn’t have much time to walk the beach, look for sharks teeth and bird.
So~Birds were my priority this morning.
I was wondering if the Red Knots were still around…
We had seen them each day we were at the park..it seemed like the numbers were increasing daily.
I headed straight north to the end of the island…
There they were!
..many on the opposite side of the inlet..
some action was happening..
Bit by bit…
the Red Knots came over to my side of the inlet…
spreading out on the edge of the inlet..
The birds took flight..
I felt bad that I got too close..
The birds settled down a bit further way..
Here is the video I took of this huge flock
I tried to pan thru the flock so you can see ..just how many there were.
Jeff and I are now in Atlanta..here for a few more days then plan on heading to Nashville or the Smoky Mountains.
