My family vacationed at Pawleys Island last week, renewing an old tradition that started back in the 1990’s and has now been revived after about 8 years’ absence. Back then, I was not a birder. Now I am. And Huntington Beach State Park is a premier birding hotspot, appearing on eBird maps with a gold star on a red pin. I got 14 new life birds at HBSP and took a few photos. Enjoy.
