A terrific morning of birding! Highlights were the trifecta of Kingfishers, and great looks at each one of them. There were several flyovers, including immature Gray Hawks to a Roseate Spoonbill, Caspian Terns, and a great variety of shorebirds.
The normal schedule of walks is daily at 8:30am, except Sundays. No walks will be conducted on Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day.
