"Rain and fog at the start of the CMBO Morning Meadows walk did not prevent us from having a productive birding experience. We even had several groups of very close N. Gannets that were close enough to see very well despite the fog. Raptors were also well represented with 2 Merlin. 1 Kestrel, a Coopers Hawk and an immature Bald Eagle. Shorebirds were not numerous but we did see fly over Least Sandpipers, both Yellowlegs, 2 Piping Plovers, and a Killdeer on nest with 3 eggs on the side of the path ( a very busy spot for nesting birds)."
