September 7, 2013 - South Padre Island

Early morning storms on the way...

The nasal call of a Tricolored Heron on Laguna Madre Bay

 

The wooden du-du-du notes of a Short-billed Dowitcher followed by the squawk of a Great Blue Heron (looped once)

 

Sandwich Terns with two smaller Black Terns (one in flight)

Sandwich Terns interacting

 

Black Tern stretching  (calls are more squeaky and wheezy than the Sandwich's)

 

Trio of diners (L-R:  Laughing Gull, Sanderling, Black-bellied Plover)

 

Laughing Gull followed by the high-pitched feeding calls of a Sanderling
