On Thursday August 19, 2021 some 18 Sussex Bird Club members braved the bugs, heat and humidity to walk the Dike and Boardwalk trails near the Prime Hook NWR headquarters. The group observed 45 species in about 2.5 hours (8-10:30am) of birding. Our group included 4 new members, the Oberkoflers and the Sorensons. Highlights were least and semi-palmated sandpipers, ruddy turnstone, Caspian, common and Forster's terns, semi-palmated plovers, several orchard orioles and blue grosbeaks.
