Large group of American Oystercatcher

Operation Plover Patrol has begun. There are a couple of surveyors who have gone out around the high tide and watched. What is interesting is the number of American Oystercatchers that are down there. Several times they have counted 100 just on the beach. We just had 65 on Thursday. Also the Wilson’s plovers have arrived. The season has begun.

If you are in the area and want to help with a survey, it is very simple. It is basically standing
and watching the large gathering of birds at Jekyll Point and record what you see. I do have a form for you to look over before you go out. Let me know.
