AFTER THE STORM (5/16/2006):


This Great Black-backed Gull has nesting on the mind


While this Merlin seems to be still drying off


And this Peregrine Falcon was dining on something white


This exhausted Solitary Sandpiper was too pooped to get off the road


And these two Roseate Terns at Sandy Point SR were left-overs


While this Red Fox kit waited nearby for lunch (hopefully not Piping Plover tartare).
