Reddish Egret – Ed Konrad

Aija and I are back at Seabrook, and had a terrific day first day on the beach yesterday (Wednesday 8/17/16). We gtot our first looks of the summer of the Reddish Egret, which was on North Beach for about an hour and a half. First spotted for a short time back on the old cut. Then flew to beach just north of protected bird area. Aija spotted her first Black Tern of the summer. Some big numbers…50 Sandwich Tern, 300 Black Skimmer, 8 Marbled Godwit.¬†We were at beach from 9am to 1:30pm, as the tide went out.

Here is Aija’a ebird checklist:
