Antigua 8. Premium Perches at the Lagoon

We walked to the nearest large lagoon three times during our stay and enjoyed time watching the various water birds at different times of day and lighting conditions. Most of these are from a late morning visit when the sun was high and the birds fairly inactive. 1-3 Pelicans spend a lot of time preening and their feathers blend well with the old trunks that they rest on. 4 Ruddy Turnstones like our Turnstones like to roost in groups while the Cattle (5) and Great White Egret (6) use high perches to get the best view. Other IDs - 7,8  Black-Crowned Night Herons; 9 Belted Kingfisher diving and 10 Spotted Sandpiper (winter plumage).
