Bird Walk for All People - Thursday, September 4th, 2014

Hot, humid weather with a slight overcast and no breeze!  There was still an abundance of birds on beach and trails. Surveying the beach, we had Royal and Forster's Terns and along Bunker and Plover Ponds there were Indigo Buntings and Blue Grosbeaks in the dune scrub; Green Herons; Northern Shovelers and Green-winged Teal with a number of Mallards; and Solitary Sandpipers and Greater Yellowlegs. Flying over us were Glossy Ibis and Double-crested Cormorants; and the sky was filled with Bobolinks. Leaders: Chuck Slugg, Cindy Bamford, and Hugh Simmons.
