September 25, 2009

This morning's migration bird walk turned up a number of surprises. You never can know just what to expect! A Winter Wren heard singing from near the community gardens was a first find directly on our property despite the fact that they breed nearby in Hubbard and North Branch River Parks. Other notable sightings include an flyover accipiter (possibly Cooper's Hawk), an immature Bald Eagle, a Ruby-crowned Kinglet, and a White-crowned Sparrow. A complete list is shown below:
