Judy Williams

The Plainfield trip only had 4 people plus Judy, and we had two Alder Flycatchers to start out from marshes on both sides of street and two Kingbirds.  A Common Merganser flew overhead, before we plunged into the trail, over a new bridge, and through the evergreen woods to the pond.  The woods had Red-breasted Nuthatch, Pine Warbler, and Brown Creeper, plus Bt Green, Bt Blue, Yellow-rumped, and Blackburnian Warblers.  A Raven called somewhere close, but was never seen.  At the pond a Broad-winged hawk circled, and then caught a young Kingbird, as we noted a parent in chase.  Sapsuckers and Purple Finches and Rose-breasted Grosbeak called.  Winter Wrens were at the waterfall and farther along the trail.  Other birds on the walk back were Hermit Thrush, Blue-headed Vireo, and Veeries.  At the house we had 2 Hummingbirds and more Purple Finches, plus good treats as always on the comfortable screened-in porch.
