July 18, 2013 birding by kayak IBSP

Last updated about 3 years ago

During our birding by kayak trip at Island Beach State Park on Thursday, July 18, 2013, we saw 23 species of birds. This was a little lower than normal and many "expected bird visitors" were not seen. It just means we need to make another trip to find them. We started after 8 AM and wrapped up around 11 AM. The day was clear and extremely hot with temperatures soaring into the 90s. Wind was about 5 - 10 mph at start of trip and then died down. We paddled out to a sand bar and stopped before moving into the middle of the bay and finally in to the tidal marshes of Spizzle Creek.
