Hello and happy Monday!
During our visit to Florida we made a quickie visit to Pompano Beach Florida. This is a busy city and is located just north of Ft. Lauderdale. The nearby Hillsboro Inlet forms part of the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway. My main reasons or goal for visiting Pompano beach was to see the parakeets that were being seen near the beach and Pompano Pier and to see the Hillsboro Inlet Lighthouse.
I was lucky to get a metered spot right in front of the beach and so lucky my parking spot was right in front of the tree were the Blue-crowned Parakeets were being seen. As soon as I got out of our car I could hear the noisy parakeets. There may have been 15-20 of the pretty parakeets in the one tree. These Blue-crowned parakeets are my newest lifer.
Photos in the mosaic, I was able to zoom in on the Hillsboro Inlet Lighthouse. Black Skimmer were on the Pompano Beach along with some pretty Terns. The beach and water had this ugly red seaweed, it did not look like the usual sea weed I am used to seeing.
Below is my parakeet tree, the parakeets almost blended in with the green leaves.
I didn't count them but there were maybe 30 or more Black Skimmers on the beach and with some Terns and Gulls.
A closer look at the Hillsboro Inlet Lighthouse, there was a helicopter flying by when I took the photo from the Pompano beach. Lighthouse tours are offered only once a month and it includes a boat ride to the island where the lighthouse is located.
Thanks for your visit today! I hope you enjoyed my post and photos.
