Reid Field Trip Report 17 Feb 2019

Saturday, March 3rd, 2018

Fourteen birders made the Reid SP trip on cold but sunny day where 25 species were counted on the checklist.  A good look at 27 Purple Sandpipers  was a highlight.  Ten birders continued on to Five Islands where another 25 species were listed.  (Many thanks to Dona Salco and John Berry for photos and Gordon Smith for the checklists.)
