Hello, this is a December 17 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 flock of 10-14 WHITE-WINGED CROSSBILLS are being seen around the museum
at Grandfather Mt. in NC. The birds wander erratically but patient birders
have been rewarded with close-up views of the birds as they feed in the
spruce and on the feeders around the museum.
GOLDEN EAGLES were seen at Mattamuskeet NWR on 12-6 and at Alligator River
NWR on Dec. 8.
4 WHITE PELICANS continue to be seen at Mattamuskeet NWR.
WESTERN KINGBIRDS have been seen on the Outer Banks recently. On Dec. 7, two
birds were on wires at milepost 53 south of Salvo. On Dec. 15, three birds
were seen together at Elizabethan Gardens in Manteo.
A WHITE-WINGED DOVE was seen in Beaufort, NC on Dec. 5 at the Ocean View
A POMARINE JAEGER was seen from the beach at Hilton Head , SC
Thanks this week to John Fussell, Jeff Lewis, Todd Birutis, Dwayme and Lori
Martin, and David Disher for their calls and reports.
