It was a great day of birding. The sun was shining the entire walk and the temperature reached 81 degrees. We had 10 observers on the walk. We tallied 43 species. There were several highlights that amazed our group. Our local Red-tailed Hawk flew very close by, perched on a low branch, and sat for us to all get good looks. A Barred Owl was perched in the pine trees for all to see. A Scarlet Tanager gave a great show for several minutes.

Description: It was a great day of birding. The sun was shining the entire walk and the temperature reached 81 degrees. We had 10 observers on the walk. We tallied 43 species. There were several highlights that amazed our group. Our local Red-tailed Hawk flew very close by, perched on a low branch, and sat for us to all get good looks. A Barred Owl was perched in the pine trees for all to see. A Scarlet Tanager gave a great show for several minutes. The Tanager had a grub in its beak and was constantly singing. We suspected the Tanager had a Juvenile in the area since he kept looking for more food. We also located an Acadian Flycatcher nest. The nest was low and very close to the trail. The parents were actively feeding at least two immature birds and we saw the adults carrying away fecal sacs. - Report by Bill Deininger.
