Hi all,

Went down to Ochlockonee Bay (Mash Island County Park) yesterday and today.
Yesterday was a near-total rainout, but there was a single RING-BILLED GULL
my first of the season, and hundreds of BARN SWALLOWS.

This morning, however, was another story. Low tide, pleasant temps, few
bugs, and lots of birds:

Brown Pelican (1)
Great Egret (2)
Clapper Rail (2, quite bold)
SEMIPALMATED PLOVER (2-3, my FOTS)
Willet (1)
MARBLED GODWIT (1, FOTS)
SANDERLING (5+, FOTS)
SEMIPALMATED SANDPIPER (several, FOTS)
Short-billed Dowitcher (3)
STILT SANDPIPER (1, FOTS)
Laughing Gull (lots)
Royal Tern (2)
SANDWICH TERN (4+, one fed a fledgling while I watched!)
COMMON TERN (10+)
Forster's Tern (50+)
Eurasian Collared-Dove (1)
Mourning Dove (4)
Common Ground-Dove (3)
Gray Kingbird (1)
Barn Swallow (just one!)
Northern Mockingbird (1)
European Starling (3)
Seaside Sparrow (1 singing)
Boat-tailed Grackle (lots)
House Finch (1)
