Sunset Birding at Stone Harbor Point - Tuesday, September 9th

A very windy evening at Stone Harbor Point with a little rain mixed in.  Still a good evening with good looks at Piping Plovers and a hunting pair of Peregrine Falcons.  We were able to get great looks at the falcons perched on the beach and enjoyed speculating on just what kind of yellow bird one was eating. Leaders: Warren Cairo, Gail Dwyer, and Nancy Watson.
