May 20, 2007 Sunday Morning shorebirds

We finished the shorebird workshop on Jekyll. We met at the Welcome Center and watch some birds out on the mud flats. There are some many good choices but finally we decided to go to the south end of Jekyll. Sanderlings were the main shorebird there to study. It is a good time to study them for some are still in basic plumage some are in alternate plumage and some in between. There was one female Wilson’s Plover out at the edge of the dune line on watch. We have our fingers crossed that they success in getting the young raised this year. It was a wonderful end to a great weekend for of course I love shorebirds.
