Indian River & Burton Island Report October 13


Eleven members and two guests of Sussex Bird Club met at Indian River Inlet on the south side of Delaware Seashore State Park. Winter waterfowl had not arrived but we did see Caspian, royal, common and Forsters terns, cormorants and three white winged scoters.

Next the group crossed the inlet and headed to the Burton Island trail. Highlights were two black-crowned night herons, palm and yellow-rumped warblers and two eastern phoebes. https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S60584442

We finished the morning with an early lunch at Big Chill Beach Club with a view of the ocean where we saw a lesser black-backed gull and a ring-billed gull on the beach.
