Al and Lois Richardson
Under drizzling skies, four birders joined Al and Lois Richardson for the first in the scheduled Wednesday walks. As worse weather threatened, two people left and the remaining intrepid birders walked to the T along the Bark Haul Trail. The skies opened and we returned to the parking area. This proved to be a passing shower and so we birded the meadow and found a newly returned Rose-breasted Grosbeak, Brown Thrasher, and several singing Yellow Warblers. Unfortunately, Pondside was devoid of any returning waders. A fly over Osprey, Double-crested Cormorant, and Great Blue Heron helped bring the trip list to a total of 29 species.
