White sandy beaches are common in several spots on the Gulf Coast. They are especially beautiful when they blow into sand dunes. I'm up in Destin, FL and the beaches are the same exact color as your beaches. The water is usually warmer than the Atlantic Ocean during the same times of year, so the fish population is different, therefor the birds are different.
Oh great beaches....Wonderful to know..!!
Thanks. Yes, Siesta Key Beach is noted for it's white "sugar" sand. It's pretty wonderful...never gets hot to walk on. Our beach was voted #1 in the nation this year!
Second picture gives look of snow field where this bird is located..must be white sand.
I especially love this one with the waves and the willet!
