Point Mouillee Summer Shorebird Trip 08/06

Tuesday, August 06, 2019 7:46 PM | Steve Jerant (Administrator)

Nine members of JAS visited Pt. Moo SGA on Tuesday to search for shorebirds.  Ross Green scouted the week before and expectations were low.  We did get a few notables including 3 American White Pelicans, a bunch of Black Crowned Night Herons, and a King Rail.  We found better mud outside the Game Area. And then lots of mud driving out to the antennae farm. 

Thanks again to Ross for leading the trip.
