Yesterday, Paul Rogers, Gary Phillips and I headed to Santee Coastal
Reserve in Charleston County for some all day birding. We were there from
9:30AM to about 4:30 PM. Meet up and birded much of the time with CBC
member Linda L. from Mt Pleasant. Sorry Linda but I simply couldn't retain
your last name. It was a gorgeous day and the 73 species were certainly
gratifying even though nothing spectacular materialized.
Great Blue Heron-5
Little Blue Heron-3 two adults one immature
Am. Black Duck-6
Bald Eagle-5 mostly immatures using aging characters mentioned in the
latest issue of birding there were at least two BasicI or Basic II birds;
one basic III bird one that appeared to be more juvenile and an adult.
N. Harrier-3 one adult male, one immature & ?
Clapper Rail-1 heard only
Am. Coot-about 1,000
Tree Swallow-over 100 but could have been much more
On the way home we had a Eurasian Collared Dove on a wire over highway 17
in Georgetown. Amusingly it was keeping a distainful distance from its
citified cousins the Rock Dove.
Good birding, good company,
