I had a great morning at Marl Bed Flats today. I found two Seminole County life birds: Semipalmated Sandpiper and Stilt Sandpiper. Of course, these birds aren't all that unusual along the coast, but inland they're a little more uncommon. I've been keeping an eye out for both species this year, hoping they would turn up, but I didn't expect I'd see both in one day. Neither species was all that photogenic though, and other species were much more cooperative.
Bobolinks and Red-winged Blackbirds were everywhere, particularly Bobolinks. I estimated that there were 150 of them there.
There were about 8 Roseate Spoonbills, and these were the first I've seen this year in Seminole County.

One of the Semipalmated Sandpipers did pose for a photo briefly along with a Least Sandpiper in the background.
