Report: Friday Evening in the Meadows

"At the CMBO Meadow Walk this evening we had great looks at Black Skimmers both skimming and sitting, Oystercatchers and Piping Plovers. We finished with a fly-over Black-crowned Night-Heron."

This note was from Karl Lukens, who along with Judy Lukens, Chuck Slugg and MaryJane Slugg, led this evening's walk around The Meadows. Tonight marks the "official" start to summer, but for birders, autumn will begin with the next substantial cold front, as the first southbound dowitchers and yellowlegs arrive from points north.
