Bunche Beach - Sanderlings and Semipalmated Plovers

Eastern Willet

June 19th 2010 is the Ribbon-Cutting at Bunche Beach for the new facilities.

I went over to check out the beach after work this morning and found that the crews were still prepping for tomorrows events. The road access to the beach was closed for some of the work.  So had to park at the new facilities and walk maybe a half-mile to the beach. The tide was high and the birds were not plentifully, but still found a variety of species.

My list - Mottled Duck, Brown Pelican, Double-crested Cormorant, Great Blue Heron, Great Egret, Snowy Egret, Tricolored Heron, Reddish Egret, Black-crowned Night-Heron, White Ibis, Roseate Spoonbill, Turkey Vulture, Osprey, Red-shouldered Hawk, Semipalmated Plover, Willet, Sanderling, Short-billed Dowitcher, Laughing Gull, Least Tern, Common Ground-Dove, Red-bellied Woodpecker, Fish Crow, Prairie Warbler, Northern Cardinal
