Snapshots from the Charleston meeting

Bulls Island lived up to its reputation as one of the best birding spots around. As did the migration trap Patriot's Point.
Birders at Folly Beach strained their eyes for a distant jaeger. And braved rain, wind, and a threatening offshore thunderstorm.
Jim Elliott, Executive Director of the International Center for Birds of Prey in Charleston, spoke and displayed a Peregrine Falcon. And a Tawny Eagle (I think I got that right).
