Slaughter Beach Trip Report May 16, 2019

May 20, 2019

20 SBC members met at Prime Hook. It was raining, chilly and overcast although the day started and ended warm and bright. At Slaughter Beach F.D. a variety of shorebirds were visible but nothing special. We then moved to the new Marvel Saltmarsh boardwalk. The highlights there were several seaside sparrows, a saltmarsh sparrow, northern parula, American redstart, common yellowthroat, and a Virginia rail that skulked into the cordgrass before most of us saw it. Next we briefly birded the edge of the bay at Evans Rd. Our last stop was the DuPont Nature Center, where we saw a large number of shorebirds, but very few red knots, before the bugs and heat drove us away. Click here for a detailed report. There are 4 eBird checklists for this trip:
