May 29 - Belleplain & Heislerville

Out today with guys that force me listen hard in order to understand my native English...a visiting UK birder in Simon K., and a now resident Scotsman in Bill E.
We took the long ride down to the Delaware Bayshore areas in hopes of some uncommon shorebirds & the breeding specialties of Belleplain Forest. While we did not encounter any rarities at Heiserville we did enjoy the shorebirds, including a breeding plumaged White-Rumped Sandpiper.

At Belleplain we saw some life birds for Simon in the Acadian Flycatcher, Blue Grosbeak and Summer Tanager.
