The Second Saturday bird walk included 24 observers. It was sunny with the temperature starting at 74 degrees and ending at 82 degrees. We had 44 species and one unidentified gull. A well marked Red-tailed Hawk flew over. We all had a good look at a male Scarlet Tanager as he sat for several minutes preening his red-orange and black feathers. We also had a close look at 4 Eastern Phoebes waiting for a parent to bring an insect. And our Barred Owl was tucked in the top of a pine tree for all to see. - Report by Bill Deininger.
