Higbee Beach - Friday, April 20th, 2012

A rather quiet morning, but we did have several singing Prairie Warblers that did not want to be seen. We did get good looks at Field Sparrow and White-eyed Vireo. Some "Bay" watching produced the usual gulls as well as, about a dozen Northern Gannets, Dunlin, an American Oystercatcher, and hundreds of Double-crested Cormorants.  Leaders: Karl Lukens, Warren Cairo, and Patty Rourke.
