The Pepper Creek bird walk on October 14 yielded 23 species . It was nice to see some returning winter residents like House Wren and Ruby-crowned Kinglet. A few warblers were also sighted including Black&White, Prairie and Pine. Unfortunately there were no Wood Ducks in sight when we reached Pepper Creek but overall it was a very pleasant morning and an enjoyable walk. The next Pepper Creek walk will be on Saturday November 11.
