As you guessed it, another post from Barnegat Bay. This is yet another late post from March 22nd. I am trying to catch up as I am way behind.
This time, the Oystercatchers were coming out in pairs. They were starting to pair off to start breeding and nesting in the dunes near the jetty. I saw at least three pairs and a few others that probably didn’t pair off just yet.
Other than the Oystercatchers, only a few House Sparrows started to arrive. The usual Loons, Dunlins, Sanderlings and Purple Sandpipers were scattered about.
I did see a dolphin but not the kind you are thinking of. It was a U.S.C.G. HH-65C Dolphin helicopter.
