|He's Trying To Disguise Himself As A Flamingo|
We're not spending too much time in the area. We just came out to see the beach, the waters of the Gulf and to do a little dolphin watching. Although, I wouldn't rule out taking a trip down here next year. Meanwhile, I got some pics of the local wildlife and it seems as if quite a few of the egrets and herons were missing some limbs. I'm told that this generally happens when the bird's appendage gets tangled in fishing line. The line eventually cuts off circulation to the limb and causes amputation. Many tangles occur in the nest, when hatchlings get wrapped in unsafe nesting material.
