Birding The Richmond Bay Trail 11/27/14

The Richmond Bay Trail has many waterbirds at this time of year. Today’s highlight was being ablel to see Ridgway’s Rail. It was especially surprising as we saw it right during a low tide. It was the first time I have seen one since its name has changed from Clapper Rail.  It was also the first time I have seen Black-crowned Night-heron right at the beginning of trail by the first bridge.

Most abundant today were the Scaup, Ruddy Ducks, and Coots. We identified 42 species and I am sure there were more. There were possibly Lesser Scaup mixed in with the greater and walking through the residential area we heard what as either an Oak Titmouse or Chestnut-backed Chickadee. We didn’t even see a Canada Goose or House Sparrow.
