Glenn Coady led another successful bird walk for us on Sunday, September 13th. It was a beautiful September morning, which unfortunately is often not conducive to good birding. Migrants were generally scarce, but a we found a nice mixed flock of warblers near “the bowl” near the end of the walk. Fall warblers are always a challenge to identify (and often even to find) so it was great to have Glenns expert eyes to decipher their cryptic plumage.

At the the end of the walk the list of species seen was:

    Red-necked grebe
    Double-crested cormorant
    Great blue heron
    Mute swan
    Canada goose
    Mallard
    American wigeon
    Sharp-shinned hawk
    Semipalmated plover
    Killdeer
    Ring-billed gull
    Belted kingfisher
    Black-capped chickadee
    Red-breasted nuthatch
    Swainson's thrush
    American robin
    Gray catbird
    Cedar waxwing
    Magnolia warbler
    Yellow-rumped warbler
    Palm warbler
    Bay-breasted warbler
    Blackpoll warbler
    Black-and-white warbler
    American redstart
    Wilson's warbler
    American goldfinch
    Merlin
