Birding Eastshore State Park – Berkeley 2/26/17



Today we went birding at McLaughlin Eastshore State Park. We started by Sea Breeze Cove, went through the Berkeley Meadow and observed the North Cove along Virginia Annex. Identified 38 bird species. Most impressive were the seasonal ponds in the Meadow. There were more and larger areas under water than on any previous visit over the last several years.
