Ten Mile Beach Birds
- Charlene and I surveyed for Snowy Plovers along Ten Mile Beach today. We saw
41 of them. We also saw a Merlin being chased by a Kestrel, and as soon as
the Kestrel gave up, the Merlin turned and dived into the duens and came up
with a gopher(!) that we watched being torn apart.
I also saw a Burrowing Owl just south of Inglenook Creek (about 50 meters
passed the bridge) in a pile of driftwood adjacent to the Haul Road.
