More from Myrtle Beach
By: Pat Coate
Here’s a few more photos taken during sisters getaway at Myrtle Beach.
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.
Came across the cormorants in several places. Though not seen in this photo, they have impressive green eyes.
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.
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.
