Yesterday we joined a group to bird
South Beach, Chatham Ma,
Mary Noonan Keleher, a facebook friend, invited us to tag along.
We took the first water taxi out of Outermost Harbor, to South Beach.
We paid an extra 10 dollars to get a drop off closer to North Cove.
Below is a map of South Beach and Monomoy If you want to Bird South Beach check out this link.
The map is there as well
It was supposed to be a stormy morning….but we got lucky…
See Map above.
Mary brought her daughter Ashley along…Ashley birded with us and also keep herself busy by creating art..
And shallow water..
I still suck at shorebirding…
I feel like a beginning birder when it comes to shorebirds…
A few birds like this Plover, are easier for me to ID
And these..well~what else could they be?
Easy ID for me :)

Why have we never seen this bird before? There were hundreds of them flying low over the water.
A fun day for all ~
