Fantastic variety of birds and congratulations on your lifers. Interestingly I spent a week in Durham during my Christmas break and traveled to Wrightsville Beach by the Atlantic coast on Dec 21. I managed to find two life birds in the form of Black Skimmer and Anhinga. The Skimmers (26 altogether) were a bit far away and my images are no match for the details that you got.

Many of the birds there were very unconcerned about people nearby (or even approaching for handouts) so it made it easier to get good photos.
