PIC OF THE WEEK: 02/02/15 • PREVIOUS WEEKALL 2015 PICSNEXT WEEK

Where: Hilton Head Island, SC • Fish Haul Creek Park
Notes: A little research and a bit of persistence paid off when we finally found this highly recommended birding spot on the Northeast side of Hilton Head Island. Reports of Black Skimmers by the hundreds and tales of wintering shorebirds had enticed our exploratory endeavor. On our first try to find this park we failed, but were just a few hundred yards too far west. From the shore we could see large groups of Marbled Godwits and Skimmers on a distant peninsula, but they were easily a tenth of a mile away. A couple of days later we made a second attempt and found the entrance to remote parking lot with nice walking trails leading to the coastline. Our research suggested arriving as the tide lowered, this was good advice. For as the water rushed out to sea, vast sand flats appeared in front of us. As this happened the shorebirds flew in from the opposite beach and began to probe for food along the edge of the receding tide. At one point a small group of these Dowitchers flew in just ahead of me. Seeing that they were foraging in one general direction, I moved that way and waited down low. Soon the group passed by, one after another, allowing me a few shots of each individual sandpiper.
