September 6 - Brigantine

A return trip here was done today, thanks to my friend John who came to my house after I was initially going to drive, but last night found a nail in my tire. And I'm glad I did not miss this trip as we had very nice views of a trio of Hudsonian Godwits

We also had terrific flight views of the Roseate Spoonbill as this bird continues its long stay here.
