ECO WALK - RECAP
Great morning for our walk. Cloudy. which made it a little difficult to ID the bird, but with many good birders; no problem. :) We had 8 birders who were ready to work the trees. We spent quite some time just in the trees before entering the trail. Lots of Swainson Thrushes, Veerys, Blue-gray Gnatcatchers. The FOS Yellow-bellied Sapsucker. Four species of Woodpecker. 3 species of Vireo, warblers, Scarlet & Summer Tanagers and Indigo Buntings. Thirty-one species for the count. Not a bad morning for the weather conditions. We went to lunch and learned it was Betsy Frank's birthday and she celebrated it with a candle adorned bowl of Rice Pudding! On the way home, we checked out the retention pond at the mall and sadly saw that the path around has not been maintained. Completely overgrown and very difficult to see where it started. Also stopped at Lancelot north of ECO. There we had a few more of the same birds that we had at ECO. The list of species for ECO can be seen at this link.
