A Run by the Cameron Jetties and Offshore

It was a surprise start for the day as Robby and I watched this Mink heading through the parking lot at the Wetland Walkway.

He traipsed right up to the new restroom facility and headed around toward the Women's Restroom.

Robby and I pulled into Peveto where we met Dave and Mac. The tractor man was mowing trails while Dave was weedeating and while Mac was watering the new trees recently planted. We spent some time at Peveto then proceeded to the Jetties.

We boarded Dave's boat at the Jetties and headed south. We idled along the edge of the Jetty Rocks where the birds seemed relatively unconcerned about out presence. The rocks harbored some stunning Ruddy Turnstones in their breeding plumage and some Least Sandpipers.

The Pelicans were out in great numbers sitting on the Rocks.

The Redfish, with their backs and tails out of the water, were feeding around one of the sections of the rocks.

The Laughing Gulls were everywhere and enjoyed Dave's popcorn as he tossed it into the water enticing the Gulls to come close.

This Gull was of interest as if flew over the boat.

We saw many Gulls, shorebird, and Dolphins on our excusion and a good time was had by all.


  1. Tom, I wonder if that is the same extremely bleached Herring Gull that I saw on April 27. Great shots as usual!

  2. Hi Erik,

    Thanks ... Steve ID'd it as a Therring Gull, a cross between a Thayer's Gull and a Herring Gull.
