Nineteen hearty SBC members met at the CHSP Gordon’s Pond Trail parking lot in Rehoboth Beach. We walked across the dune crossing to observe the ocean where we saw some scoters and loons. Then we walked north on the trail to the observation platform and back. Highlights of the effort were a flock red crossbills and several brown headed nuthatches feeding in the pines along the trail. We observed some 36 species which is very good for a cold, bright winter day. The eBird checklist is presented here: The checklist is adorned with many excellent photographs contributed by participants.
