Sea Watch ll – Cancelled due to bad weather

December 9, 2017 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm

A Note from Chris:

I regret to inform everyone – that was thinking that a great way to spend a
Saturday morning in Delaware is standing on a dune, being pummeled by 15
mph NNE winds carrying either very cold rain or frozen precipitation while
looking for birds out over the ocean – that Anthony Gonzon and I have
decided to cancel the DOS Seawatch that was planned to take place at Indian
River Inlet tomorrow morning. Don’t despair, we have a third Sea Watch
fieldtrip planned for Saturday, January 20 between 8 am and Noon. Hope to
see you then.

Join Anthony and Chris to ID and document seabirds such as Northern Gannet, scoters, loons, gulls, & cormorants, plus find a rarity or two. Check the forecast and dress appropriately.

Limited walking on soft sand to get to viewing spot on beach. Portable toilets available at IRI. Half day.

Meet at the Delaware Seashore State Park lot on the south side of Indian River Inlet along the ocean (Southeast Day Use Area) at 8AM.
