This was the Sussex Bird Club's first trip of 2021. Weather was stellar for mid January (43F, sunny, low wind, no precipitation). About 22 birders came, including several new members and several first time attendees. We assembled in the parking lot, broke into 3 groups, walked to the Bay and south on the beach then back to parking lot for the owl show. We were not disappointed. Rob and Carol birded our way down Prime Hook Rd, Cods Road and Fowler Beach Road to the parking lot and saw several species there too. We recorded 27 species. The eBird checklist can be found here.
