Several of us birded the flooded fields early this morning. The Sooty Tern
that was present yesterday (or another individual) was resting in the grass
before it joined a Black Tern feeding over the water.
The shorebirds were far fewer than yesterday with only the following
Pectoral, Least, Stilt (2) Sandpipers
Semipalmated Plover
Red-necked Phalarope (3)
Also a pair of peregrines were hunting over the area causing the birds to
constantly move around and within an hour or so everything has left.
Photos were taken of the Sooty Tern and they will be posted to the Carolina
Bird Clubs photo page in a couple of days- when I am back home.
