It was a long but very successful day for 8 birders among the fields and waterways near Chincoteague, VA. Highlights included a bar-tailed godwit, marbled godwits, willets, and piping plovers. Sharp eyes also spotted a lone cattle egret along the road. Altogether 60 species were seen on this trip! Here are 3 of the 8 eBird checklists: Swan Cove, Queen Sound, and Beach Parking Lot.
