Please let me know or post if anyone else sees it. We'd love to hear. A group of 60+ ROCK DOVES are there mid-day in t...

Birding Trip with Karl Stoltzfus: 8-26-17

This morning's trip out on the Bay with Karl Stoltzfus (Bay Excursions) was marvelous!  We woke up to heavy rain clouds and fog out over the bay, but by the time we were ready to go, the fog had broken up and we didn't have even a drop of rain the whole time, no wind, and very calm waters. Many good...
