Another fine birding event- expertly led by Elias Zuniga. Spring activity is building at the nature center and this is a great way to get a close up look. Highlights included: Soaring red-shouldered, sharp-shinned, and Cooper’s hawks, a diving osprey, a buoyant swarm of white-throated swifts, and a pair of wood ducks. Singing orange-crowned warblers, house wrens, and common yellowthroats- soon to be joined by colorful waves of neotropical migrants. Next month’s walk on April 10 should be exceptional!
An excellent morning of birding! Highlights included: a small band of pintails, a group of green-winged teal, a white-tailed kite, a sharp-shinned hawk, northern harrier, osprey, great horned owl, a hooded oriole, and what we’re pretty sure was a stilt sandpiper. (Whoops!! Just a dowitcher).
Next week is Gum Grove Park.
Next month’s LCW walk on April 9th should be especially productive because of the recent rains. Please consider joining us! Check our events calendar for more information.
