Millwood Lake 9/13/2008

I joined ASCA members for a pre-Hurricane Ike run to Millwood Lake in anticipation of exotic birds. It was warm and cloudy with spits of rain. Unfortunately, the exotic gulf birds were mostly a no show but we did see a swarm of hummingbirds at a feeder which included one female Rufous Hummingbird. We arrived at Beard’s Bluff at about 9:30, visited Saratoga Landing as well, and left at around 2:30.

Species seen or heard:
• Blue Jay
• Ruby-throated Hummingbird
• Carolina Chickadee
• White-eyed Vireo
• Rufous Hummingbird
• Turkey Vulture
• Bald Eagle
• American White Pelican
• Northern Rough-winged Swallow
• Great Egret

• Anhinga
