Orange County DUNLIN, 10/18/16

~A single Dunlin at Citgo Pond, 10/18/16.~

QUICK POST: I got out to 6 1/2 Station Road Sanctuary’s Citgo Pond a little on the late side this evening; I had some things to take care of directly after work. But, when I eventually got out there, I finally had a new bird – a single DUNLIN. I got super looks at the bird in my scope, but the bird was a bit distant for any decent photos. I was super excited, I’ve been waiting for a while for something good to make its way to Citgo, and Dunlin were on my list for sure. This Dunlin is my 207th species in Orange County this year.

    1. Thanks Kathy! It’s amazing to me that all these great birds find a spot so close to where we live to use as a stopover point. Matt
