Yesterday, November 15th Green Cay Wetlands held their semi-annual Migration Celebration Day. There were hundreds and hundreds of people who visited on what turned out to be an amazing sunny and comfortable November day.
Linda Fell and I did a “Big Sit” as part of the festivities. A Big Sit is where you stay in one spot and see how many birds you can find from that set spot. We were stationed directly behind the Visitor Center. We only moved within a 17 foot circle and over the course of the morning we saw 46 different species of birds.
Linda kept track on a big sheet of paper where everyone walking by could see our growing total of species. It was surprising to see how many people stopped and looked at the list.
We had a couple of spotting scopes set up so it was possible to add quite a few birds throughout other parts of the wetlands and not just the ones who flew by.
I had a wonderful morning with a good friend and was able to share some of my “birding wisdom” with some of the folks who wandered by.
Thanks for stopping by and God Bless!
