BIRDING SEA PINES GOLF COURSE
In spite of the very grey morning I saw 40 species - Thousands of ducks and shorebirds. In various pines were Red-breasted Nuthatch, Chickadee, and Ruby-crowned Kinglet. Favorite sighting of the morning was of two local photographers with their tripods and humongous cameras waiting for the Peregrine Falcon that sometimes perches in the dead cypress near the Baywood Pier. They were not having any luck; as I continued on I spotted the Peregrine in a nearby Pine, clearly visible to the men with cameras. I do think this Peregrine is a tease.
