Other things you hope to see in Florida: Wood Storks. These strange looking birds are somewhat rare and always a thrill to see.
We sought out the inlet's calm and deep water, where the most unusual of Florida's visitors has been seen.
No, I don't mean Canadians. They seem gather here in good numbers; we met 2 couples on the beach taking in the sights. So, we showed them the sight that brought our group to Sebastian Inlet.

The locals can't figure out why they are seeing these "penguin" like birds! That is a great question. Some suspect it has to do with Hurricane Sandy. (We blame that "witch" for everything, don't we?)
What could be better than a little sand and sun among friends? A Razorbill- seen in shirt-sleeve weather!
Behold, the paparazzi watching the Razorbill swim past the boat docks. Greg Cornet (in the photo above) graciously loaned his photo of the bird for your enjoyment, and was our tour guide for the day. Hats off to Greg.
