We slowly drove down the 6 mile Refuge road looking for the birds the kids researched in class.
In the morning we saw lots of Great egrets, several Snowy egrets, Gadwall (duck), Green-winged teal, and Double crested cormorants. The morning crew also found a dead Harbor seal.The afternoon group saw the same, but also Sanderlings, Semipalmated sandpipers, Pergrine falcon, Short-billed dowwitcher, and a deer!
At Sandy Point State park, Gary Dow, the Park interpreter, gave the kids a great, short talk about migration.
We them walked the beach looking for some of our birds and anything else we might discover.
We ate lunch on the beach!
