Santee Lakes Field Trip Results

Hi Friends,

On Saturday morning February 26, twenty-three birders walked around Santee Lakes. Excellent weather, and we found 60 bird species. As with previous field trips at Santee Lakes, we found lots of American Coots, Mallards, Canada Geese, Northern Shovelers, and Wood Ducks. A rare Greater Scaup was also found.
