Rail Trail Evening Walk

Rail Trail, Amherst

May 9, 2024

Harvey Allen

Nine members gathered for a two hour walk on the rail trail.  We identified 38 species with some quite special observations, including great looks at a non-bird species—an Eastern Red Bat. The rarest bird species was a Least Bittern, which flew up from reeds on pond across open water and landed in another reed bed.  The last bird of the evening, a Barred Owl, was spotted for the group by one sharp-eyed birder.
