A note from Chris (1/16):

Join Anthony Gonzon and me this Saturday morning at 8 am on the south side of Indian River Inlet – at the Southeast Day Area of Delaware Seashore State Park – to scan the ocean and inlet for migrating and wintering sea ducks, loons, grebes, cormorants and gulls. With luck we may spot eiders,
a Harlequin Duck, Razorbill, Black-headed or Little Gull.

You are welcome to join us for the entire four hours or just a few minutes. Come and go as you please. There is not an entry fee. The current forecast is for lots of sun and a high temp. of 50 degrees.

I hope you will join us.
