Hi all,

Went down to Mash Island County Park down by Ochlockonee Bay early this
afternoon, looking for such goodies as Piping Plovers, Red Knots, etcetera.
It was high tide, so no plovers or knots, but there were a few Etceteras...

The birds of the day were the flyby CASPIAN TERN, and the two female HOUSE
FINCHES - they wern't in the park, but were down one of the side roads off
the road to the park.
