Snow Bunting
This morning before Thanksgiving dinner, my daughter and I decided to go to the beach to make a sand castles. Coincidentally, a Snow Bunting has been seen at the Canaveral National Seashore over the last couple days, and it just so happened that a parking spot was open right where the Bunting had been seen. So even though I was at the beach with fatherly family responsibilities, my daughter had almost as much fun seeing the bunting as I did. We found the bunting right at the entrance to parking lot 8. It was back lit and far a way, but I was able to take a couple pictures before my daughter decided she was tired of looking at birds and wanted to go to the beach. It was all I could do to put the camera down, but this was daddy-daughter time, not birding time. We had fun on the cool and very windy beach before returning home.
