Calm Before the Shorebird Storm - 31 Jul 2011
I rode on to Cell 3, where I met up w/ friend and fellow photog Cherise Charron. We chatted a bit and caught up w/ area sightings, but failed to see any good birds in Cell 3. A few Caspian Terns and Forster's Terns were roosting on logs in the mudflats, but no shorebirds.
Even the dragonflies were avoiding the heat this morning, so I headed back to the car and called it a morning.
Osprey note: The two youngsters in the Humphries Unit appear to have fledged, as I saw only the parents on the tower this morning. The pair in the Vermet Unit have a nest, but no young. The nesting pair on Port Sunlight Rd. and Estrel Beach have a single youngster!
