The area was full of birdsong. The list of songs identified by the group is below. We also saw many wildflowers in bloom – including some Pitcher Plants and Yellow Lady Slippers.
This is a great place for learning birdsong – and close to town – so one could go back again and again to consolidate the memory of songs. The few people who did come had a very enjoyable outing.
Listing of Birds heard:
Yellow Warbler (seen and heard)
Red-winged Blackbirds (seen and heard)
Black Capped Chickadee
American Robin (seen and heard)
American Goldfinch (seen and heard)
Common Yellowthroat Warbler
Mallards (seen and heard)
American Crow – seen and heard
Merlin also picked up Cedar Waxwing, Cape May Warbler, and Nashville Warbler – but we didn’t specifically hear the song and confirm.
This is the last planned outing for this year’s program. We are working on the next program now – watch your email and our social media feeds for updates!
