Team Notes

Participants: Martha Rosenquist, Richard Moore, Bill Lanham, Sale Schofield, Alen & Nancy Kenny, Debbie & Jerry Turner

Weather: mostly clear, but windy and cool (65)

Location: Huntington Beach State Paark, Murrells inlet SC, observation platform at end of Kerrigan Trail

Time At Location: 7 AM 6:30 PM

Notes:
water level in pond was high, so no shore and no shore birds, wind probably also kept many birds away from open area. Otherwise lots of waders: herons, egrets, ibis and wood stork. Good views of solitary roseate spoonbill.
