Joe and I spent a long day at the beach Saturday. Originally, we planned on
starting at Ft Fisher. But, with Will and others talking about the Reddish
Egret, we decided to start at Sunset Beach. We didn't see the Reddish Egret,
but we both loved the Sunset Beach area. We're going to look into renting one
of the homes on the beach so we can walk outside to see the Semipalmated
Sandpipers, Sanderlings, Turnstones, Willets, Snowy and Great Egrets, Royal,
Least, and Gull-billed Terns, and of course, Pelicans.
We did get lucky and saw a flock of 12 Wood Storks along 179 in the Twin
Lakes area. YEAH!! We used to see them all the time in our neighborhood in
FL. So, we added 2 NC species, the Storks and Gull-billed Tern.
We took a short cut through the Sea Trail Community, along 179, not far from
Twin Lakes. It was a pleasant surprise to see at least 5 Red-headed
Woodpeckers!! Two were immatures.
We got to Ft Fisher and the aquarium at 6:10, in time for dinner at the
feeders, and a pair of beautiful Painted Buntings. YEAH AGAIN!!
It was a long, hot, fun day!! Happy birding!
