Delmarva 11/7-11/10--List & Index

Saxis Marsh

Shari & I went on a van trip, led by Scott Barnes & Linda Mack of NJ Audubon down to the Delmarva Peninsula. Our major stops were Bombay Hook, Chincoteague NWR, Eastern Shore of Virginia NWR, Kiptopeke State Park, Magothy Nature Preserve, and Prime Hook. While only a few of these spots were new to us, it always a pleasure to go to familiar areas with experts who have the patience and knowledge that allow you to "get on" birds you would probably overlook.

Wolfe Neck Waste Treatment Plant 11/7--Black-headed Gull
Chincoteague NWR 11/8--White Ibis, Brown-headed Nuthatch
Saxis WMA 11/8--Virginia Rail
Seaside Road 11/9--Western Kingbird
Eastern Shore of Virginia NWR 11/9--Golden Eagle
Prime Hook 11/10--American White Pelican

For the 4 days I listed 114 species. The cumulative number for the group is always more. I would guess there were probably 5 or 6 species I missed. I'm very happy with what I got, including 6 years birds.
