This week I attended a workshop on shorebird management. There were
associated field trips.
We birded south beach, and the HWY 17 Mitigation Site. Nothing too
exciting or unusual to report.
Least, Western, and Semipalmated Sandpipers
2 Whimberels (On Jekyll Causeway)
18 Roseate spoonbills (perched on western tree line near mitigation
There has been a steady easterly wind for the last 2 days, so we're
hoping for something more exciting bird-wise.
Banding at Jekyll has started off strong (not a day under 100 so far).
No rarities yet.
If you are interested in participating in the International Shorebirds
Survey program visit the website http://www.manomet.org/ISS.htm
or contact Brian Harrington (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Essentially you survey an area every 10 days to census shorebirds
during migration. The size of the area is not important.
