Shorebirds in Ponte Vedra

This past week over New Years we spent a few days in Ponte Vedra Beach Florida.  The weather wasn’t great, but at least it wasn’t raining.  I found some pretty nice size sharks teeth and got some good shots of the shorebirds hanging around the beach.  Below was my favorite picture of what looks like a Sanderling or Dunlin.  I only say that after looking at this website that shows a lot of the common birds found around this area of northeast Florida.  This and other pictures of Ponte Vedra can be found at
