Bird of the Week … Who am I???

Every Sunday we publish a weekly “Bird of the Week” blog.  Today we want to give you a hint to see if you can guess which bird we will profile.   Here are  four clues:

  1. This bird is frequently seen on Seabrook Island at the beach and along ponds near the beach.
  2. This is the only bird in America whose lower mandible is longer than the top mandible.
  3. Makes short barking “yip” notes like this.
  4. And finally, the silhouette is below.
