Spring Migration Gets Busy! Trip Report

Well, I guess a few is better than none. The warblers were here but not in force. The day was almost perfect with a cool, calm, and filtered sun day. We had Twenty-Six attendees today of all ages and levels of experience! I am starting to see a trend as the local always-seen species were again unaccounted for.

Thanks to everyone who attended. You make my day when I can share my love for birds!!

Our next walks, yes two walks in one day, will be:
