I had the pleasure of joining Nathan as a member of Perry Nugent's band of
birders on the Pawley's Island/Litchfield
Christmas Count today. Some highlights from the Jetty:
200+ Bonaparte's Gulls
Field Guide looks at an imm. male Surf Scoter and
a hen Black Scoter that hung around the jetty for hours
Absurdly mild weather: as we stood there at the end
of the jetty, 1/4 mile out into the ocean, all dressed up like Eskimos, a
guy wearing shorts and a tee shirt came
The usual Huntington Beach State park specialties:
Piping Plovers, Great Cormorants, Peregrine, lots
of Red-throated Loons. Alas, no Cave Swallow
or Short-eared Owl (unless, of course, I brought them forth by leaving early
so the others could see them).
Great Day! Long live the Christmas Bird Count!
With Love for Nature and those who Love Her,
