|Beach from the Lot 1 Boardwalk|
Random observation 1: Eastern kingbirds don't seem to be hanging around the beach as much this year. I used to observe them perched on the mile markers and the signs. Today, a drive down the road all the way to the end revealed a ton of eastern kingbirds perched mainly on trees and shrubs, but also on fence posts. There seem to be as many of them as there usually are. They're just not hanging around the beach.
