Our Daily Ocean: Day 247

It's simple.  Whatever we do (or don't do) impacts the world we live in. 

We're volunteering with Audubon NC as Wrightsville Beach Bird Stewards!  It's a great reason to be at the beach and while we're there, I'm able to do a quick 20 minute beach clean up.  Watching the birds has given my kids a renewed perspective on helping cleanup the beach-- to protect the birds!  This week we got to see 2 oyster catcher chicks!

There are also lots and lots of Black Skimmers that are currently nesting on Wrightsville Beach.  I LOVE watching them skim along the surface of the water.  (ok, I also love just watching them sit on their nests).  Want to see more pictures of the nesting shorebirds at Wrightsville Beach?  Check out the WB Bird Stewards blog!
