Sny Plovers, M Godwits & P Martins on Coast
- Hi-- As early as 5 July, Jim Havlena saw 3 Marbled Godwits on Ten Mile
beach. Two days later, I saw 2 Marbled Godwits on Seaside Beach. On
12 July, I again saw 2 Marbled Godwits on Ten Mile beach, just south
of the river mouth.
Four Snowy Plovers are being seen (7/12-19)on Ten Mile beach 900 yards
north of Inglenook Creek mouth. There are bands on two of the birds:
LR:WW and GW:LY. Apparently, the LR:WW bird is at least 15 years
(One can read a detailed account on the Save Our Shorebirds Yahoo group
Or contact Angela Martin Liebenberg: ammartin@... . This is
a "members only" group, so the web address might not work.
Also, Erica Fielder told me that there are several Purple Martins flying
below Ten Mile bridge. It is a little difficult to bird around there now,
due to the new bridge construction, but there are about 4 parking spaces
on the south side of the bridge.
