Six attendees came to the walk. It was nice to have a small group so that birds sighted could be easily pointed out. We were not disappointed with bird sightings including some surprises! Twenty-six species were sighted and/or heard as we walked from the parking area to the Scranton Flats fire station. It took 2½ hours to get that short distance!

Pre-purchase native plants online for your yard and garden now. Don't be fooled by a somewhat dormant appearance of native plants in the fall months! Catch a bird walk! Fall is the best time to plant so that root systems have plenty of time to get established before they're called upon in the spring to produce leaves, flowers, and fruit. Plant and coffee proceeds support local chapter conservation activities.
As we began we spotted a Red-tailed Hawk. Barn Swallows perched on power lines near buildings and a small flock of House Sparrows dashed by. More shrubby areas got us House Wren, American Robin, and a second mockingbird. On the return trail a participant saw a Song Sparrow, and we added a Red-winged Blackbird.
