Hello, this is an August 9 update of the Carolina Rare Bird Alert featuring
birding news from North and South Carolina sponsored by the Carolina Bird
Club. Highlights on this report include:
A CURLEW SANDPIPER is being seen at Pea Island NWR on NC's Outer Banks. It is
being seen at an area known as the Salt flats, north of the north dike of
North Pond. After crossing Oregon Inlet but before reaching North Pond, park
on the shoulder at utility pole # 38 and walk towards the sound. The
shorebirds are in the rear where water is still present on the flats.
2 LONG-BILLED CURLEWS were seen at the east end of Shackleford Banks (NC)on
An immature REDDISH EGRET is being seen at the east end of Sunset Beach,
While at Sunset Beach, scan the marshes for WOOD STORKS. These birds are
commonly seen here north to Ocean Isle and Shallotte Inlet. Some have been
reported from Orton Pond recently .
RED CROSSBILLS can be seen at Granfather Mountain (NC) and Mount Mitchell SP
(NC). Look around the Mt. Mitchell Restaurant at the state park.
Thanks this week to John Fussell, Jeff Lewis, George Barlow and John
Pendleton for their calls and reports.
