Slow Sunday - 24 Jul 2011
It then flew off after two of its young that had flown out of the phragmites nearby.
I met up with Tom Gass and birded with him the rest of the day. We rode the Middle Causeway to the dike separating the Bloody Run and Long Pond Units, then north to the North Causeway. There we picked up Marsh Wrens singing in the Long Pond Unit before we took the dike separating Vermet and Long Pond Units back toward the Middle Causeway.
The dredge pumping was turned off today, so the mudflats had an inviting look for good shorebirding today. Alas, no shorebirds were in sight. No sign of the American Avocet.
Thanks for letting me bird with you today, Tom! And good to meet you, Jan and Linda!
