There’s not enough time in the world it feels like to do ones duties as a member of society and yet also do what one wants or needs. and I was certainly out and about this morning looking at the many birds that I wish I had taken pictures of now that I begin writing. But a small list includes Ibis, Herrons, ducks, sparrows, phoebes and the endangered snowy plovers. The natural world can feel so far away in the city but spending some time with some of the natural avians made the morning start right. the beach is near wetlands that the ducks love and the beach itself is a huge nesting ground for the plover population…. however the beach itself for the use of humans is limited. as seen in the following picture
Between the fence keeping you out of the military base to your left and the plover nesting site to the right, alot of ormond is fenced off, for good reason mind you but it does detract heavily from the scenic beauty of the area… that is not to mention the deactivated power plant down the coast that is also in plain sight.
The beach itself is not great if your looking for your usual surfing, sun bathing or for any sort of grand view… if your looking for birds and animals to watch however… you may be surprised.
