Assawoman WA & Indian River Trip Report


November 21, 2019 was a beautiful, seasonably cold morning when 11 SBC members traveled to Assawoman Wildlife Area. We scoured the skies and fields of Sassafrass and Mulberry Landings, and climbed the "scary" observation tower. Highlights included 11 species of ducks and an aerial display by 2 belted kingfishers.

Our final stop was Indian River Inlet south. We had good views of 7 ruddy turnstones and 3 purple sandpipers. We also saw one lone brown pelican and one long-tailed duck.
