E-Z Birding - Tuesday, July 21st, 2015

Highlights of today's walk included a large flock of Black Skimmer on the beach and good looks at a few skimming the plover ponds, a singing Blue Grosbeak along the marsh path followed shortly by a singing Indigo Bunting allowing good comparisons for these two species, and singing Common Yellowthoat warblers. A Yellow Warbler was briefly seen by a few, and just before the walk formally began, 20 Glossy Ibis flew over apparently in migration. Leaders: Catherine Busch, Steve Weis, and Chuck Slugg.
