Subject: Dare County birds from today
Birded briefly at the north end of north pond on Pea Island this morning.
Had 4 Common Gallinules, a first-of-season Hooded Merganser and 5
Ring-necked Ducks. Lots of other ducks, coots and several species of
shorebirds were seen. The two Golden-Plovers are still present on the flats
north of the photo blind, as were 3 American Pipits. Found a Saltmarsh
Sparrow just north of the viewing platform. An American Bittern and
Eurasian Wigeon were seen just before I arrived.

An hour or so on Jennette's Pier afterwards rewarded us with lots of Black
Scoters, a few Surf Scoters and a female Common Eider. Also a Parasitic
Jaeger.
