I got to visit Sylvan Beach on a search for some late day photography. This bird (I am not sure of the species here, please let me know if you know!) stood on this rope and looked around the beach for several minutes. He did not mind me standing nearby and snapping these images. Finally, he got bored or found some perch he liked better and took off for parts unknown!
