Trip Report: Britannia Conservation Area

Saturday, August 25th

8:30 AM to 12:30 PM

A nice morning out birding with EOB friends new and old. We began our day at Britannia Conservation Area where we enjoyed amazing views of warblers, including up-close-and-personal views of both Cape May and Yellow-rumped. Great Crested Flycatchers were also showing very well for us. We moved along to Andrew Haydon Park east, where we observed numerous shorebird species, including two juvenile Baird’s Sandpipers. We finished our outing with a visit to the west-end of Andrew Haydon Park where a juvenile Northern Harrier was the star of the show, slicing and dicing lower over the water, spraying the shorebirds and gulls into the air. We tallied six Wilson’s Snipe and two Short-billed Dowitchers there, as well. A great morning! See below for species checklists…
