Great Day Of Birding

Jeanette & Glenn
We met our friend Glenn early this morning on the Smith River estuary for some birding. Although it was a perfect morning with low tide, the birds were a little scarce, we could only come up with a list of 18 species, so after an hour we moved on to Reedsport. Here is our checklist for Staples Road on the Smith River estuary.

In Reedsport we took Glenn on an old favorite route of ours on the Schofield Levee. Here we found an abundance of birds, ending up with an observation list of 40 species, perhaps a record for us. Checklist for our Reedsport list.

  1. Wow! Quite the list, 40 sounds like a record breaker.
