While I am not a football fan, the only Gipper I can think of was George “The Gipper” Gipp who played for Notre Dame who died at the very young age of 25. I don’t know if the boat was named after him but I assume it was and well, you know what happens when you “assume.”
Anyway, a few unusual visitors to the bay were spotted on April 8, 2013 when these photos were taken. A Great Egret was standing proud on the jetty and a few Mallards were swimming on the ocean side of the park. That was my first time seeing Mallards in the ocean.
I won’t bore you with a lot of commentary so on to the pictures.
Don’t forget to visit my Flickr page for some high resolution wildlife images.
Dunlin in intermediate plumage. You can see it is starting to change from it’s winter plumage to it’s breeding plumage. Most noticeable is the black patch coming in on it’s belly and the darker plumage on it’s wings
