Early Birders’ Observations for June 21, 2015

June 24, 2015

The the second-to-last 2015  Early Birders Morning Walk was was rich in rain and then some more rain. Six dedicated birders noticed 28 species from under hoods and umbrellas, braving damp dirt roads and muddy trails to do so. Thank goodness for beverages and tasty baked goods to help us dry out by the viewing window (where we added a few more species). As she’s done this year so many times, we appreciate Mae Mayville for eBirding the results for us.

Early Birders’ Observations for June 14, 2015

June 17, 2015

Our Early Birders Morning Walk on June 7 was amazing! Not the highest species count, but possibly the highest birder count. Ali Wagner led the walk (and she will lead the next two also), and she is one terrific birder. Attendees ranged from brand-new to birding to decades of experience.

Thank you again to Mae for eBirding the results.
