Birding the Meadows with Pete Dunne - Monday, March 20th, 2017

Nice numbers and variety of ducks including two flyover Wood Ducks. Red-winged Blackbirds were sitting up and singing. Over the ocean we saw Northern Gannets, Black and Surf Scoters as well as a Red-throated Loon and a Common Loon. The usual gulls were seen and one Bonaparte's Gull flew very close for a good view. Lots of Yellow-rumped Warblers were also present. Leaders: Pete Dunne, Karl Lukens, Steve Weis, Janet Crawford, Barbara Bassett, and Chuck Slugg.
