Willet (my first)

A new bird for me, the willet was there throughout the week and I enjoyed watching it. I actually saw two briefly, but they seemed a bit territorial and one appeared to chase the other away.

In sync – Double-Crested Cormorants

Came across the cormorants in several places. Though not seen in this photo, they have impressive green eyes.

Female Great-tailed Grackle

These birds were all over the boardwalk at Murrells Inlet, enjoying the outdoor eateries. They very aggressively moved in as soon as patrons left a table, often perching on the umbrellas or in nearby trees. Hush puppies were their favorite at the Dead Dog Saloon.

Bald Eagle with prey

I was trying to get a picture of a great egret when I saw this adult bald eagle swoop down and pick off one of the smaller ducks along the causeway at Huntington State Park. It did not seem like a very fair fight.
