Despite the number of boats in the harbor here, the local wildlife seems to thrive.
We have gulls (of course) but also osprey and bald eagles. King of the birds though are the pelicans. These pelicans must be well fed because they seem to succeed in a catch more than 50% of the time they dive into the water. We can see them swallowing the catch.
We also see lots of fish jumping; especially around sunset. Alas, our Florida fishing licenses expired and new ones are just too expensive.
Best of all is the dolphins that come to feed in the harbor. Last night Libby was watching them feed right at the side of Tarwathie.
