Herons, Egrets, and waterfowl can be found in this area. Search the salt marshes for Clapper Rail, Seaside, and Nelson’s Sharp-tailed Sparrow. Shorebirds, including American Avocet, Marbled Godwit, Long-billed Curlew, Black-bellied Plover, Dowitchers, Dunlin, and Least Sandpiper will frequent the acres of exposed mudflat. The shallow waters of Egery Flats attract all of the terns, so look in warm months for Caspian, Royal, Sandwich, Gull-billed, Forster’s, and Least here. Black Terns may also be seen here in migration.
