|Subject: ||American Oystercatchers,
Buff-bellied Hummingbird and Roseate Spoonbills on Jekyll|

It was a great morning of birding on Jekyll. We were ahead of the 4-h groups so the birds were thick on the beach. There are 2 pairs of Wilson's Plover staking out locations on the beach. I did not bring the GPS but will try again to do that tomorrow.
We were treated to ten American Oystercatchers none of them banded. After the beach we went to Pam Russell's house and the Buff-bellied Hummingbird is still coming to the feeder. He is in molt. The last stop was the Amphitheater pond where we found seven Roseate Spoonbills. Some of these were adults, scarlet shoulders, orange tails and pale green heads.
On the way off the island, I saw a very pale Red-tail Hawk. This Krider's Red-tailed Hawk has been on the causeway for about three weeks but it is very elusive. It flies away if you stop.
