A Pileated Woodpecker was sighted yesterday at MacKerricher State Park,
just north of the campgrounds, close to the Purple Rose Restaurant.
At SEASIDE BEACH, a single Dunlin was spotted along with some Whimbrels.
In the Rose Memorial Gardens, there's a Killdeer nest. The female
feigned a broken wing at my approach and upon very careful, close
inspection, a single egg was noted. After leaving a note on the door of
the office and walking back towards the nest area (in order to leave),
it was noted that while gone, the female had lain a second egg in the
nest and was even more protective of it, rushing us, then feigning a
broken wing. . .I sure hope they don't mow the area and that people with
dogs will keep them on leashes!
