Birding The Richmond Bay Trail 10/2/17

Today we did a short birding walk along the Richmond Bay Trail. It was sunny, windy with white caps on the bay, early afternoon and between high and low tide. Not the best conditions for birding. We did see 15 species, which is a  less than usual for the area. Most numerous were the White-crowned Sparrows flitting in and out of the shrubs and trees.
