Bird Report 070911: Peregrines, Skimmers

Mike Britt reports:

Two Peregrines soaring high over the shorebird pool. Two Black Skimmers were roosting on the flats with the gulls/cormorants. Later the Skimmers were "skimming" and interestingly…one flew off high and south with a fish.

As for southbound shorebirds…a Greater Yellowlegs and 6 Semipalmated Sandpipers were on the flats at Berry's Creek…meanwhile 4 Greater Yellowlegs & 2 Lesser Yellowlegs were roosting at Clay Ave.

(Thanks, Mike!)
