October 2, 2009

Our final Friday bird walk of the season turned up some new discoveries. The highlight might have been a Solitary Sandpiper which was flying upstream along the North Branch and landed on the shore directly in front of six lucky participants, offering clear, close views. Other highlights include an American Woodcock which was flushed out near the community gardens alongside the river. The morning's complete list is shown below:
