Garth Riley lead a large group on a cold but sunny walk at Colonel Samuel Smith Park on Saturday, March 24. Cold weather and north winds appeared to have stalled migration of many typical early spring migrants. We couldn’t find many species that are often present by this date. We also couldn’t find he Snowy Owl that had been present in the park every day in the previous week. Although we ended up finding 30 species of birds, most were present in lower than usual numbers.

Here’s our list for the morning:

Canada Goose
Mute Swan
Gadwall
Mallard
Redhead
Greater Scaup
Long-tailed Duck
Bufflehead
Common Goldeneye
Red-breasted Merganser
Red-necked Grebe
Ring-billed Gull
Herring Gull
Rock Pigeon (Feral Pigeon)
Mourning Dove
 

Here are a few photos from the walk:

American Crow
Black-capped Chickadee
American Robin
European Starling
American Tree Sparrow
Song Sparrow
White-throated Sparrow
Dark-eyed Junco
Northern Cardinal
Red-winged Blackbird
Brown-headed Cowbird
Common Grackle
House Finch
American Goldfinch
House Sparrow
