This past Saturday a group of Birders who Blog, Tweet and Chirp
got together to bird two areas in Charlestown, RI.
First on our list was Charlestown Breachway.
We all knew there would be a wet crossing to the mud flats, so we prepared our gear so that it would stay dry.
Dan and Cindy at the crossing..
A second small crossing..
We had great views of a Buff-breasted Sandpiper (A life bird for Jeff and I and a few others on the trip)
Other highlight birds Black bellied, Semipalmated,and Piping Plovers.
I am a lazy birder and try to soak in a little information each outing,I don't do home study very well.
Western Sandpiper A few White rumped sandpipers We birded the flats all morning… It was time to have lunch.. So we followed local birders across the flats to a shallow crossingIt was lovely, the water warm and refreshing on a hot day. The grasses were full of mosquitoes..Ouch!
I really enjoy birding with my Blogger and Twitter friends, its great being with people that share similar interests.
People that enjoy being in Nature.
Who don't complain about getting wet..muddy...hot.or a few bug bites.
Stay tuned for the Part 2 BwBTC Trustum pond NWR
