We set out at 8:00 am with six participants, two of which were brand new members. The weather was sunny, but cool with temps in the low 50s. We walked to the 1 ½ mile marker, and then headed back.
We counted a total on 17 species on the walk, with Blue Jay being the most plentiful bird of the day. Most exciting was the Common Loon family of three. Other birds on the water were Canada Geese, Double-crested Cormorants, a couple of Great Blue Herons, and a Belted Kingfisher. While walking we observed three different species of woodpecker, Red-bellied, Hairy and Pileated. There were also Golden-crowned Kinglets, White-breasted Nuthatches, Red-tailed Hawk, Blue-headed Vireo, and two species of warbler, American Redstart and Yellow-rumped Warbler.
