PIC OF THE WEEK: 03/02/14 • PREVIOUS WEEKALL 2015 PICSNEXT WEEK

Where: Beaufort, SC • Hunting Island State Park
Notes: One of the most unusual scenes we saw on our latest trip to the southeast coast was where the Maritime Forest was slowly being encroached upon by the Atlantic Ocean. What is the remains of a tree, there is now only what appears to be a chunk of driftwood raising out of the beach sand. Despite its appearance, it is not truly driftwood, for it has never floated freely in the current. The raising and lowering tides have provided adequate conditions for barnacles and a few small oysters to grow. So, when the tide goes out a buffet of sea barren delicacies appears. Occasionally there were as many as three different species of birds including: Sanderlings, Ruddy Turnstones and Willets, all feeding on the same stump with as many as ten to twelve individuals at a time. A random tall wave would sometime rush in and spoil the feeding frenzy, but they would scurry back over as soon as the water receded. We enjoyed this activity until the returning tide pushed our efforts back. The ocean began to reclaim, and thus replenish, this natural food source for a future meal.
