Apalachicola: Birds, Lights and the Forgotten Coast 2022

Members of TAS went to our first field trip to The Forgotten Coast Christmas week. We saw 94 species on the three-day trip, including the rare to Florida, Long-tailed Duck. We also scoped the resident American Flamingo at the same stop in Saint Marks (See our Trip Report here. Other birds of note included three Whimbrels, Bonaparte’s Gulls, a group of three Reddish Egrets, Song Sparrow and Cedar Waxwings. We selected places to visit based on a local Audubon member suggestions. These included Port Saint Joe, Saint Joseph’s Peninsula and St. George’s Island. We made a special effort on day three and visited Saint Mark’s NWR. We would like to include either the Forgotten Coast or St. Mark’s/Wakulla Spring next year and look forward to members’ suggestions. Photo by Mic McCarty, Field Trip Leader
