SIB recently received the note below from SCDNR Wildlife Biologist Felicia Sanders.
Pat Leary photographed this Red Knot, which we tagged at Seabrook Island on April 29, 2017, at Corrigan’s Reef, Cedar Key Florida on November 18, 2017. This bird probably went to the arctic to nest and now is wintering in Florida or headed farther south and just stopping a while in Florida. He saw another knot we tagged at Seabrook and one we tagged at Deveaux Bank in April 2012.
Thanks again to everyone for helping with Red Knot trapping, which is helping us figure out their migration patterns!
