Eight participants joined our first fall migration bird walk. A thick layer of fog sat in the valley of the North Branch River, but that didn't stop the group from observing a great number of birds. Robins and Waxwings were seen in huge numbers and a nice variety of species overall, including:
*The Red-bellied Woodpecker was heard from a distance. Although uncommon at NBNC, they regularly visit some feeders further down Elm Street, so we are somewhat confident of this identification. Also seen, seperately from the AM bird walk, was an American Woodcock which was flushed from an area near the river.
