Tuesday Bird Walk
On August 6 the Tuesday Bird Walk went to Columbia Beach by French Creek. The morning was sunny and warm with very little breeze. A few highlights from the walk were a Great Horned Owl, Long-billed Dowitcher along with Greater and Lesser Yellowlegs and these were seen at the end of Admiral Tyron Blvd by French Creek. Not much was happening on the water side but there were 8 Black Oystercatchers feeding on the beach. Our parking lot bird was a Common Loon.
