April 25 , 2008

Our first Spring Bird Walk commenced this morning. This first walk of the season took place at the Nature Center, and our group observed:

Wood Frogs 1
Canada Goose (flock of 17 overhead) Tree Swallow
Duck sp. Black-capped Chickadee (1 seen entering nesting cavity)
Turkey Vulture White-breasted Nuthatch
Ruffed Grouse Ruby-crowned Kinglet
Rock Pigeon American Robin
Yellow-bellied Sapsucker Yellow-rumped Warbler
Downy Woodpecker Northern Cardinal
Hairy Woodpecker Savannah Sparrow
Northern Flicker Song Sparrow
Eastern Phoebe White-throated Sparrow
Blue Jay Red-winged Blackbird
Blue-headed Vireo Common Grackle
Brown-headed Cowbird

On another note, with yesterday's Vacation Camp group, we were discussing frogs. The Wood Frogs just recently (this week) began laying their eggs. The group helped start a tank in which we will be rearing the frogs, and we will be posting their progress in development in the Nature News. The first update is from today, at which point not much development has occurred.
